  1. The first thing I would look at is heat. Clean all intakes, fans, heat sinks on everything and pull the video card and clean the dust in that. Build up of dust/dirt on the mother board can also cause heat problems. Also check the intake on the power supply for dust.
  2. It's an older system and this could be a whole number of things. What I'd start with is re-installing windows to see if something is messed up with your OS. If that doesn't work atleast we know it's a hardware problem.


    ^ EDIT: Do swifty_morgan's suggest first as a quick check fix.
