I've had two failure modes similar to what you describe. The most common 
is a dodgy power supply, from my experience, where the voltage begins to 
get hairy and sag to indeterminate logic voltage levels.
The other, hard drive failure. I have one box right now that has a dodgy 
hard drive, awaiting my attention, as I've a nice SSD to replace it with.
