sounds like a powersupply, harddrive or ram but you might want to do a clean install and format the entire harddrive with a fresh copy of windows and if the problem presists we can begin looking for a different problem in the ram or power supply

if you have more than 1 stick of ram, take one out and see what happens, if it happens again, use the other stick

ya do that to eliminate the idea that it could be the ram then we can do more tests on each component to determine the problem.

it may be a RAM problem i had one similar too, changed the RAM and everything worked fine . Or just take out all the parts, clean them and again set them back on to the PC and see what happens
