The first things I'd look at are the power supply and heat. They can both cause these symptoms.
Download, install, and run SpeedFan on the machine. Watch the temperatures and voltages. If you can post screenshots of the SpeedFan window (Readings tab), that is often very helpful. Let us know what the highest temperature you see is.

Time for some spring cleaning...get yourself a can or two of compressed air from an office supply store and give the insides of the machine a good cleaning. Pay special attention to the CPU cooler and the Power Supply. When using compressed air near a fan, keep the fans from spinning when hit with the air with your fingertip or some other non-conductive tool. Spinning a fan too fast can damage bearings.
Also check all the fans to make sure they are spinning up as they should with no excessive noise.
Let us know if this helps...
