Windows will not load every time computer om

Specs: Windows XP
I have an HP a730n desktop that passes the POST but will not load windows. I have to press the power button at least 3 times before WINDOWS XP loads. When it does load, it may run an hour or ten minutes before it hangs and displays vertical bars on the screen.I used McAfee to scan for viruses. I have 2 hard drives loaded with different software and it does the same on both.Is this an onboard video issue?

It sounds more like an overheating problem. Unplug it, open the case and use a can of compressed air to blow out the fans etc.
