Check that all fans are spinning freely.  Run a memory test program to check out the RAM overnight.  Replug all connectors and cards.

Your question is like asking, "My car is making a funny noise, what is it?"

There are a million things that can crash a computer.  Be more specific (the more the better) and I'll give you advice on a few things to try.

If you're asking if you can halt a crash in progress, probably not. Even if you were able to cut the power, once a crash starts, its pretty much fait accompli, But, once the crash happens there are some things you should do for almost any Windows OS:

1.Try and recall what processes and programs were running at the time and write them down.
2. Write down any specific thing you were doing when the crash started, eg, pausing a video or opening a new program, running a flash application, anything like that which you can recall.
3. Write down exactly, letter for letter, character for character, any error message you may have got.
4. Power down the computer. If you can't get it to power down, unplug it and let it sit for at least one minute.
5. After waiting for one minute, try and power up and then restart in Safe Mode.
6. While in Safe Mode, scan the complete system with your anti-virus.
7. In Safe Mode, clear your cache, empty the Trash and any Temp folders, then defrag your hard drives.
8. Restart your computer and see if it will run normally again.
9. If your PC won't restart, you will have to run the Recovery disk and try to diagnose and correct the problem with that.
10. Go to the Windows Crash Analysis site and run the memory diagnostics
       http://oca.microsoft.com/en/windiag.asp
11. If none of that works, you're going to need to research the error code and resolve it by correcting whatever problem the error code references.

Any error messages?  Does is lock up or just turn off?  Anything else that might be significant?
