Could it be virus or something like that?

1. Check if you have a virus
2. Scan your HD for damages (bad sectors)
3. Defragment NTFS filesystem

Sounds like a defect power supply.

Have you checked your event logs?

Right click on my computer>manage, system tools>event viewer. I don't recall correctly what the path depth to the logs is but on windows 7, you then go to windows logs and you will see application and system logs.

Check those, anything that is warning or error warrants attention.

Have you tried submerging it in water? If so, and still luck, try the old hammer trick.
