Could be overheating, check fans for dust and make sure their spinning.

Second guess, power supply is dying

Check the following..

1. CPU overheating - check your fans, make sure they are working. check cpu/system temps in BIOS. cpu temp at idle should be less than 50C.

2. Faulty RAM - try running MemTest86

3. Faulty power supply - are the fans clogged? have you added any new devices that may be taking up a lot of power? (video card, usually)

4. If you have Norton Utilities, try running WinDoctor & DiskDoctor to check for file and registry errors.
