Windows Xp?

Given the complete lack of any information, your only choice is to format and reinstall.

I'm on here fir a friend so it's hard for the info.

It's vista...tried the format and reinstall and the problem reoccured!

More than likely caused by faulty ram. If you have more than 1 stick try each one separate and determine which is faulty. If only one stick try replacing.

When it happens next write down the error code something like 0x0000.... and look it up.

Vista hard drive problems usually result in vista not booting so it shouldn't be that.

common fault of old graphic dirvers conflicting, remove old drivers and get the latest

Process of elimination is the best method for identifying PC hardware issues. As mentioned above, try taking RAM out and using different slots/combinations. In fact just remove everything bar the hard drive and one stick of RAM then start up, each time adding something after a successful boot until you get to the device causing the problem.

Good point this would eliminate driver issues.

No probs.
With the PC turned off and unplugged:
Try and remove any static from yourself and the screw driver (normally by holding the metal of the case).
1. Remove the casing of the desktop.
2. Locate the RAM
3. If more than one then remove one by pressing the clips next to each end.
4. Once tested one stick remove as step 3, then place the other stick in the first slot.
4.1 Firmly press each end of the RAM stick until you hear a click.
5. Once tested each stick put case back on.
