    Following in order I would do them.

    Heat? Clean out dust bunnies, check all fans turn, clear cables out of ventilation path, check for loose heatsink cpu & gpu, monitor temps with utility.
    BSOD? STOP codes? Share screenshot, review mini-dump.
    Event Viewer? Check for interesting errors.
    Memory? Memtest86: 7 passes
    HDD? SMART, manufacturer's utility
    CHKDSK /r
    SFC /scannow
