Irregular crashing

I've recently (as in within the past 4 days) been experiencing crashing on windows xp.
It crashes while running Firefox, while playing games, trying to set a desktop background, and even when sitting with no programs running!

I have installed a new back-up hard-drive, (Western Digital 750g) but that was almost over a week ago now.
Haven't recently installed a any new software.
Only thing I have added is a new case-siding fan, which was about 4 days ago.

And I say irregular because there is no set-time frame for the Blue-Screen, it could be anywhere from 10minutes to indefinite.

Any suggestions or help guys?

Thanks in advance.

  1. Post your system specs: makes and models. Have you made any changes to the BIOS settings? If not, you may have a peice of hardware that is failing
  2. MoBo: Asus P5KPL-AM SE
    Chipset: Quad Q6700
    Video: Geforce 9500GT
    Sound: Onboard
    RAM: 800Mhz DDR2 1gig sticks x2

    And no, I have made no changes to BIOS settings.

    Small update as well.
    -Unplugged the new backup drive and the crashes are still coming, but
    the crashes are not coming within an hour now, they are taking quite some time.
