    whatsit say on the PSU info label? Voltage/Amps etc.. maybe the PSU doesn't have enough juice to run your video card...

    Boot into safe mode and see if its stable. If it is:
    -Look for any drivers you may need to update
    -disable all the startup programs by going into msconfig > Diagnostic boot then see if normal windows is stable.

    run ccleaner and see if it helps things along..
