Althought there are many possibilites I would start by checking the memory.
run a memtest on it. If its fails run it with only 1 stick of ram and then repeat until you've tested all your ram sticks.

Check your hdd
run cmd sfc/scannow in safemode
also run the hd's diagnostic software(free) from the vendors site.
