Hello welcome to GeeksToGo, We will be happy to help you.

I will need some more information
If it is a name brand system:
Make and Model
Operating System
Age of the computer
Memory Total
Hard Drive Size, How much free space



If it is custom then I will need the following:
The CPU brand and model
The Motherboard brand and model
Ram amount and speed
Cd\Dvd rom interface IDE/ SATA
Hard Drive size and free space
Any cards in PCI slots
Any software installed\updated and driver updates done just before problem started

All this will help in determining a course of action to best correct the problem you are experiencing.

Is this a laptop or a desktop? Have you checked to see if the fans are working? If it's a laptop, have you blown the vents out with canned air (don't use a vacuum cleaner or an air compressor, it can cause damage)?

Have you tested your memory and/or your hard drive. You can download a free bootable hard drive diagnostic utility from the website of the manufacturer of your hard drive. You can use the memory diagnostic on the Vista disk to test the memory: http://www.bleepingc...utorial146.html
