This could more likely be a windows problem, you most likely will have to press F8 to get into safe mode. There you will have to check Windows. A lot depends on the version that you have installed. Sometimes the only way around this is to back up if you can your most inportant files then reformat and do a clean install. If this is Win 2000 or XP you could try after F8 Last known good configuration. And if you have the original disk repair mode let Windows repair itself, if it is Win 98SE then you could if you have the original disk copy Win98SE to your hard disk then enter Safe Mode on Reboot, and from the System File Checker and System Tools extract kernel32.dll which is often damaged from where you copied Win98SE. Another thought might be that you may have a virus on the computer, which is causing this and you may need to get hold of a Norton AntiVirus disk set your computer to boot from CD in the Bios and check it out that way.

Hi,

Usually heat related. Is the CPU fan well seated on the CPU?
Is the system very dusty inside?

Could be drivers related, try updating your video drivers to the latest ones from the manufacturer's website
