I fix a lot of PC's and it has been my experience that the most common causes of this problem are overheating, and a power supply going bad. Check all of your cooling fans. Make sure that all of them are running properly. Replace the power supply with a good quality 400W or greater supply.

Just to add to megasurfer says.. sometimes this happens even when there is dirt in the RAM slots. Remove RAM modules, clean the slots & modules, and replace them back. see if this stops the prob. Make sure u take care abt statics etc. dont touch them as soon as u power-off the system.

It used to be the most common...Well until Blaster & Sasser worms came along. Is this perchance a machine running Win2K or higher....If so then it probably is a worm, not heat related.
