Did you install from a purchased DVD for windows 7 either upgrade or full edition? If not then you probably have either an unactivated or evaluation copy and will need to format and reinstall a genuine copy.
If you have installed from a genuine copy, was this an upgrade install or a clean install? What OS did you have before? (From XP you need a clean install, while from Vista can be an upgrade install).

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
If all else fails, read instructions.

could also be over heating or a bad driver, try updating all drivers and check your cooling/power options
Are you overclocking in any way?

i hate computers!

Then check your power settings. Your original OS was installed and customized for a laptop with the consideration for battery life and heat build up. You need to set power down time for your hard drive, your monitor, and more. With a desktop, it does not matter if the hardware runs at full tilt for 20 minutes while you get a snack (the larger case, the more powerful fans, and abundant power allow it to work), on a laptop try powering down the hard drive after 5 minutes idle, the monitor after 10 minutes, and similar settings all around. If you find operational delays, try a little bit more on time for the hard drive.

On the outside chance this does not help, check your memory with Memtest.
