    can be caused by a lot of things:
    1. faulty drivers
    2. bad ram 9check with memtest 86+ booted from a floppy.
    3. bad or failing PSU (test with a tester and multimeter)
    4. bad or failing CMOS battery (replace)
    5. corrupted registry (unlikely) - check with ccleaner registry repair
    6. overheating CPU
    7. bad or failing motherboard -capacitors leaking?

    This looks to be a Hard Drive problem. Check the Hard Drive's cable or try another one if possible, and run Chkdsk /r.
