    The first thing I would try is another power supply. You can test this by using another power supply from another computer if you have one.

    Try reseating the memory and video card. And if the video card requires an auxilary power connector from the power supply make sure its plugged.

    Also, it might help if you provided som background. When did this start and what are all the components in your PC, and so forth.
