Sorry for not reading your OP more carefully. I really can't answer your
questions without looking at the machine. If you haven't changed
anything, hardware or software, then probably some hardware component
is failing. I'd strip it down to the very basic hardware including
swapping out the psu. For the software end, do clean-boot
A lot of doing this depends on the age of the machine and how much time
it is worth spending t-shooting it.
