    It could be a hardware problem. First, with the power off, push all connectors and RAM sticks in firmly. Better yet, pull them out and insert them again. If you've had your computer for some time, some connector contacts may have become less than perfect.

    If you added a new piece of hardware recently, see if your computer runs normally without it.

    If you have more than one RAM stick, use them in turn, one at a time and see if one of them is causing your problem. Or substitute your memory with another known good one.

    If none of these works and if you have or can borrow another power supply unit (PSU), try substituting your PSU temporarily.
