Here you need to do some diagnostics

Start with something like the Ultimate Boot CD available for free download here

http://download.cnet .com/Ultimate-Boot-CD/3000-2130_4-51584.html

Remove the space from the above link and download the ISO. Then burn to a CD and place in the Optical Drive and boot off it.

This Disc has quite a few Diagnostics on it so do the basic things. Test the RAM, CPU and Video Display as this is a Live Disc the Windows OS isn't involved and there will not be any software issues cropping up.

The RAM and CPU Tests are open Ended so will run till either the system hangs or you stop it as you are experiencing the problem first hand you'll have a better idea how long to leave those tests running.

If the system falls over you need to look at what you where testing and work from there to solve whatever is happening.

However if it works perfectly you need to look at what you have done to the Windows Install as there is some sort of Software Conflict arising.
