could be a number of things
1- bad HD (Tap f8 and try to get into safe maode and salvage everything that you can before it totally dies)
2- bad ram (run a memtest and see what it finds)
3- Failing Power Supply. (you may need to swap it out and try another)
4- you may also want to physically remove all the PCI cards except the video one and see if it runs ok.

Some HELP in posting on plus free progs and instructions Cheers
