Read the "how to post a question" sticky, your subject is pretty worthless.
Do you have software to monitor temperature? That is often a cause of system instability. Check that the heatsink is seated firmly on the cpu and all the fans are working.
Run memtest to check the ram, and get prime95 as a general stability check. Both should be able to run overnight with no errors. (Not at the same time).
