You could try a System restore to a date before you started having problems.

corrupt windows files / drivers

outdated drivers


failing hardrive

failing psu

failing motherboard

Or failed to load SP2 as it should. So a System restore would be in order

Try running Disc Check on the Operating System Partition. boot file could be corrupt. the list goes on
