Looked after it cleaned dusted ect all that stuff ya know you do, if u care :D  but now its tempermental. Sometimes it wont boot, it starts and i get the gigabyte load screen but then nothing, at the same time the load light on the case is giving of a sequance flashing (Defo not from it loading) Also this happens even after a propper load, randomly while doing almost anything from Gaming to editing and even browsing. all the hardware seems fine, i mean well.. i havnt changed anything from when it did all work fine and everything is in the right place and all sounds and looks like its working propperly.....

Mechanical components break over time.

The PSU is almost always the first thing to die. If everything was working fine for years and then everything started screwing up, that is the problem as often as not.

The hard drive could be failing as well. You may want to do a disk check on it.
