Windows 7: Computer freezes all the time. (sometimes before startup)

Computer freezes all the time. (sometimes before startup)

Hello all

I built my computer around 2 years ago and it worked great up untill I left for Afghanistan. On my return from Afghanistan though It has been freezing ALL the time. The first time I went to boot it up actually I wouldn't even turn on at all. It would light up and think for a good 10 seconds and then just turn off and then turn itself on and repeat all by itself.

I opened it up and gave it a good cleaning and this seemed to work. I was able to get on and carry on as usual. But now since then its slowly started freezing randomly. Some days it seems fine and some days I cant get past start-up. It will just freeze at the loading windows screen. Now currently I cant turn it on and I am having my original problem. I was able to get to the start-up repair and tried running some tests but for the most part the repair wizard was useless. I tried running a memory test and it froze during that (go figure).

Anyway here are my specs any help or suggestions would be appreciated. I currently believe its either a hardware problem or its overheating or something.

Motherboard: AsRock p55 Extreme

Diskdrive: LG Blueray disk rewriter

Graphics Card: 2x GeForce GTS-250

Power Supply: Mach 1 (1000w)

Memory: Corsair-XMS3 2x2gigs DDR3

Processor: Intel I5

Monitor: Sony Bravia 36in TV
