Open it up and check to make sure nothing came loose. Check all cables, memory, power connectors, etc.

Hi, if you have cross checked all the cables, power connections inside if that works fine then might be something wrong due to virus or human-errors or bugs. Please do check of all the software installed and hard-drives.

Try booting to Safe Mode with Networking by pressing F8 during boot and select it from there. See if the problem still occurs. If not then it's probable something is starting at boot time that is causing the problem, so try the following.

Advanced startup options - XP
Advanced startup options - Vista
Advanced startup options - Windows 7

Use msconfig to determine what is causing the problem

These are good tutorials on using msconfig in XP, Vista or Windows 7:
How to use msconfig in Windows XP
How to use msconfig in Windows Vista
How to use msconfig in Windows 7

Click on Start then Run, type msconfig and press Enter.
Click on the Startup tab, record what is currently starting then click the Disable All button.
Reboot and see if it runs better.
If yes then use msconfig to enable several items at a time till you find the culprit.

If no, start msconfig and click on the Services tab.
Check the Hide All Microsoft Services box, record what is currently starting then click the Disable All button.
Again, do a regular boot, see if it runs normal.
If yes then use msconfig to enable services till you find the culprit.

Once you've found the culprit, uninstall it or find out how to eliminate it from your system. Simply disabling it in msconfig is a temporary fix at best.
Enable everything else you disabled.

That error is related to Itunes. Do a complete uninstall of Itunes, reboot then reinstall it. That should fix the problem.
