Hello Juuulie,

 

Two possible causes are overheating and a hard drive low on free storage space.

 

Have you tried booting into Safe Mode by tapping F8 when you restart the computer.

 

Please provide information about your computer, this includes is it a notebook or desktop, is it a custom build or brand name such as Dell or HP, if it is provide the model name or series number (not serial) if a custom build post the brand and model name or number for the MB, the amount of Ram, add on video card if one is used and the PSU (power supply unit) providing these details will enable us to better assist you.
