I'm running a Medion M3 Composer 5300. I've had it for about 4-5 years, so I know it's getting old.

I've had these issues for the past couple of week and it seems to be increasing in frequency.

1) While working on my computer, my monitor will suddenly go to power-saving mode and shut off, as if I have turned my system off, but the tower stays on, and the Fan revs faster and faster.

2) When updating or doing an install that requires a restart, the computer resets, but the monitor shuts down and the tower stays on as described above.

3) Sometimes, upon starting the tower, there is a loud beep, and the monitor does not turn on, but the tower runs as described above.

The monitor cant be turned back on, but the system basically keeps going and the fans run continuously. I have to turn off the power switch on the back of the tower. I think I have an issue with faulty or failing hardware, and I was wondering how I can check the functionality of my components to see if there are any problems. Are there any programs or things built into windows XP that can find these issues?

No i don't think there is such a program, but there is a lot of software which will scan your PC for mistakes and those might be able to find your problem. I know that Registry Easy 4.7 is free to download and scan..if you get a lot of problems, try reinstalling windows.
