    It sounds like a hardware fault - reinstalling Windows, without knowing at least the nature of the original fault, is not a good idea.

    The first steps would be to test the RAM and the disk, to eliminate them as suspects, then move on to other possible causes.

    If you don't have the means to do those tests, then the best way forward is to contact a local repair shop or a roving professional.

    I don't think your method of testing will result in certainty about the RAM and hard disk, so it would still be cheaper to pay for the services of a professional than to buy a new machine.
