Answers :

I would first check your battery, too make sure you are powering the laptop, and then AC adapter.
You could also be looking at RAM or a failing harddrive.
If all 4 are verified and working then you could be looking at a failing motherboard.
I would also try just loading into bios with minimal components. intil it crashes on you, then you know what component is failing.
