I ran Chkdsk /r and on reboot it said the disc is clean and was only up for a few seconds then it went to login page. :)

edit: also since it crashed the first time sometimes when I shut it down it says Installing 1 of 1 updates before it shuts down

I think the power supply is the problem, its been sounding strange, gets loud and then quiet over and over

Today I just hear a ticking sound coming from the power supply, when I looked inside, the fan isn't even spinning

Can the power supply cause all the other problems?

You have found the root of your problem I believe. A faulty PSU will cause all kinds of issues including the one you are having.
I suggest purchasing a new one. It hsould be at least the wattage you have now if not better.
I personally suggest the Corsair 500 watt 80plus like this one HERE. Cost a little more but it has a steady 12 volt rail which in turn keeps your system more stable.

Ok, so eventually this computer wouldn't turn on at all

so I finally got a new psu for it

it boots fine and seems to be normal when I log in, until I get on the internet (firefox)

after a few minutes of surfing the web it just freezes completely, cant even bring up task manager.

also, it still says its installing updates 1 of 1 when I shut down sometimes.

When I turn it back on and log in I get this:

OK the problem seems to be the update for Net framework 2.0
So let's see if it is hiding somewhere.
Please go start then to Control Panel
Add\Remove programs.
At the top of the window check the little box that says Show Updates
Now what you are looking for is a entry named this Update KB974417
If you find it then remove it and then reboot and let me know if it wants you to install it when system boots back up? Does it do it if you shut the system down now also?

OK then there must be something sitting around with it.
The next time it tries to install it you should be given the option to not install that update. See if it has the option or something about not asking about that update again.

I don't see any reason to as it mostly has to do with server settings.
I would not install and if a program needs it then you will get a pop up saying to download it because this program needs it.

that update was waiting to be installed, I unchecked so it wouldn't be installed.

I installed other updates and restarted

when i logged in the hard drive ran way longer than usual, as if a program was running but only the virus scan was.

then it completely froze again while I was on the internet

so basically no change.

If you have more than one RAM module installed, try starting computer with one RAM stick at a time.

NOTE Keep in mind, the manual check listed above is always superior to the software check, listed below. DO NOT proceed with memtest, if you can go with option A

B. If you have only one RAM stick installed...
...run memtest...

1. Download - Pre-Compiled Bootable ISO (.zip)
2. Unzip downloaded memtest86+-2.11.iso.zip file.
3. Inside, you'll find memtest86+-2.11.iso file.
4. Download, and install ImgBurn: http://www.imgburn.com/
5. Insert blank CD into your CD drive.
6. Open ImgBurn, and click on Write image file to disc
7. Click on Browse for a file... icon:

Posted Image

8. Locate memtest86+-2.11.iso file, and click Open button.
9. Click on ImgBurn green arrow to start burning bootable memtest86 CD:

Posted Image

10. Once the CD is created, boot from it, and memtest will automatically start to run.

The running program will look something like this depending on the size and number of ram modules installed:


Posted Image

It's recommended to run 5-6 passes. Each pass contains very same 8 tests.

This will show the progress of the test. It can take a while. Be patient, or leave it running overnight.

The following image is the test results area:

The most important item here is the “errors” line. If you see ANY errors, even one, most likely, you have bad RAM.
