My System Specs

Default

I don't claim to be an expert but I've seen mine do similar things out of the blue. It freaks me out too, I chalk it up to many possibilities (listed in the order of what I believe is their likelihood): the o/s needing a refresh install, a flaky driver/piece of hardware, static electricity near the motherboard, unstable power supply.

I've actually had a stray chunk of house wiring fall into my open PC case and sit on the motherboard. Didn't do any permanent damage but prevented it from booting for a few hours until I found it.
