System crashes

I'm suffering serial crashing. It started with my web browsers which closed down periodically but now my whole system is crashing, sometimes to the extent that it won't start up again.
Now it seems to have affected some programs such as Itunes which won't open up.
Any ideas? I'm desperate!

have you cleaned all of the insides from dust etc...
have you tried it with a different PSU,. this is usually the problem.

Auto-reboot disable:
When Running windows and it crashes you will get a blue screen and it will automatically restart, often it will restart too fast for you to see the error message.
To disable auto restart on system failure, so you can see the error message.

1. Go to Start -> Control Panel -> System (Windows+Pause works, too)
2. Go to Advanced
3. Under the Startup and Recovery section, click Settings...
4. Under System Failure un-check "Automatically restart"
