Answers :

Sirwessel, this could be caused by several things. Hard drive failing, Windows corrupted, memory bad, overheated CPU. Take a look at the inside and clean out any dust from the fans, re-seat the memory and carefully check the connections by gently pushing them into the sockets. You may need to take it into a PC shop to see what is wrong.
Good luck!
