Answers :

Probably itz either minor case of software corruption/improper ground/cpu fan..
or major case of faulty or defective main board/ram/addon/daughter cards..

..plz do check the following as in order:..
the Hardware part:..
1)a)in power-on mode, open/unplug the data/vga cable of the monitor fromcabinet..see if raster or 'osd' is appearing on the monitor screen..ifso monitor is ok..else replace the monitor and see..[not applicable incase of laptop]..
b) in case of laptop try to get output fromexternal display unit/monitor using vga port..if there's proper displayin there..the problem is probably with either the 'lcd' or 'ccfl' or'inverter circuit'..

2) if u hv a graphics card, replace with a standby or onboard and see..[not applicable in case of laptop]..

3) unplug mains supply..pick open/remove the cmos battery..check (above +3v)..resit..

4)see if the ram(s) is loose/faulty..open clean/remove carbon &or oxide formed on the teeth with an eraser n resit it..or replace witha standby n see..

5) a) see if ur hdd is noisy or emitting any 'ticking' noise (like 'tuk tuk' or 'kirr kirr')..
b) or if the system is not supporting either the newly installed device or itz software/driver /firmware
if so, u need either a fresh os installation or ur hdd is likely to b replaced..

6) remove/clean dustneatly..dust is non-uniform in nature n may causejam/short circuitry/excess resistance n many more..resulting an increasein heat..

7) open the CPU Heat-Sink with fan out of thesocket..put some "Heat Sink Compound" (available in local electronicschip level spare market)between the cpu/processor and the CPU Heat Sink*** fan..resit/fit it tightly in position..

8) on main/motherboard..see with a debug card for mb error..may b short..look fordefective capacitors(espabove1000mfd)/mosfets..go through the mb'ssouth bridge n the circuit lie around atx connector..the crystal clockgenerator (if cpu isn't heating up)..

9) [in case of desktop] thesmps itself may b defective/faulty..check the outputs of smps viz. 0v(black~ground); +12v(yellow); +5v (red, green~ps-on, violet~pg&grey~sb); -12v (blue);-5v(white); +3.3v(orange)..the 'oscillator anderror amplifier ic',or pwm switching regulator circuit..lookfor defective protector-transformer/resistance (esp 4.7k)/mosfet..
check the battery n adapter [main power], in case of laptops..

the Software part:..
1) hv a licensed and UPDATEDantivirus installed (i prefer avg/kaspersky,remember, without updationa full version antivirus is useless)..

2) download, install n run microsoft kb890830..http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=AD724AE0-E72D-4F54-9AB3-75B8EB148356&displaylang=en..
