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
