Do you have any non-essential devices attached to your computer?


If so, disconnect them and see if they make a difference.


If not, shutdown the computer, disconnect it, open the system unit and remove one of the memory modules and see if the computer boots and functions normally.


If the problem persist, try again with the other memory module removed and the other one reinstalled.


You can also make sure your drivers are updated for your video card, network adapter and any other hardware you have attached to the machine.


Also check for any loose components in the system unit such as memory, video card etc.
