    is the PC hot at all?

    goto
    control panel>
    system>
    advanced tab>
    startup and recovery - settings>
    under the title - system failure
    untick - automatically restart

    now when it crashes the blue screen should stay on the screen
    post the info on the screen
    it will give the eroorcodes and a filename, if caused by a driver.

    in the meantime
    you may want to try running a memeory test

    you may also find some info in the event viewer
    control panel>
    admin tools>
    event viewer>

    Does it countdown when shutting down at all ??? That may be the sassar virus
