Might be a failing Hard drive. Get to your bios and see if there is any diagnostics there to do a hard drive test. On some motherboards its delete on others its F2. If there is no diagnostics on the bios i would make a USB bootable diagnostics and do that.
I just had the same problems and found out the hard way that it was a hard drive.

Keep in mind; like the article that link leads to says; your bios could be different than the one thats pictured; especially if its a custom built system.

Forget the BIOS, the options in there are limited to locate the issue.

Instead, follow these steps, starting at the top and working yourr way down the list:
