Normally CTL+ALT+Delete will lead to a screen that will restart the computer. I'm not sure what SUPR is.

Your hard drive could be failing. There's a bootable diagnostic you can use to tell you what condition your hard drive is in called Drive Fitness Test.

The exe file you download will create a bootable floppy, or you can download the .iso program to burn as a CD image with Nero, Roxio, Sonic, or whatever CD burning program you use.

When you boot it, select your hard drive and run an advanced test, that will scan the full surface of the drive and tell you if there are any defects.
