    I had a similar problem on an older desktop computer. It turned out that I needed a new cooling fan because the old one burned out and the CPU was overheating.

    I changed the fan and everything went back to normal.

    Make sure your computer is not overheating. We've had some warm days these past few weeks.

    clean out the kb too if u can.. a can of compressed air helps. if it's a desktop kb u can take it apart easily. if not, just use air.
