PC Woes

My PC isn't working right. It'll boot and run OK for 5-10 min and then the screen will go "snowy" for a half second and the machine will then shut down. Once, I caught a glimpse of an error message within my Google browser saying it had a problem just before the screen went black.

The power supply and graphics board have both been replaced within the last three years.
Everything is clean inside, no visible problems.

On booting it'll usually not find the C drive, but it is a choice from the F10 menu and it'll boot OK once it's told. The battery on the board was replaced recently.
Occasionally the C drive does not show on the F10 menu, but will if I cycle the power.

I'm very tempted to take it over to MicroCenter and just say "Fix it"

For now I'm working on the laptop.
