Not enough info. Does your system have at least 2GB RAM? Please list your complete system specs & if possible, the CPU temperature. How long have you had this problem? Did you install anything recently that may have caused this problem? Have you scanned for viruses & malware/spyware? Have you managed your startup apps?

First off we need your system specs.

RAM, type of CPU, how much HDD space you have, what operating system you are trying to use (32 or 64).

After that we can help a bit more.

Yeah, need a bit more information. Definitely check for a viruses, spyware. You can try the standard stuff like removing the startup programs using the system configuration instructions.

Start > type msconfig >remove that startup programs
You can also click the boot tab and change the number of CPU cores used during the boot process. You can also max out the memory during boot.

If that doesn't work try using the the even viewer to see what going on also.
