have you run memtest? sounds like you could have some bad memory on your hands.... you could also check the temp of your cpu, it might be getting too hot.

Here's the link for Memtest, that mdxchaos mentioned.
Also, go to the harddrive manufacturers website, and download their disk utility, to check the drive out.

Also, check your Event Viewer for error messages. Here's a guide on it, but if focuses on BSOD's - so you'll have to look for more errors than just the one's mentioned there. http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/40108/how-to-use-event-viewer/

Double click on the errors and then copy and paste the text from the window to here. Start with the last error and work your way back through them. You may notice a pattern to them - so we won't need them all - but we will need enough information to see what's happening.
