Sounds like your in a heap of trouble!

I'd say you need to replace the computer to be safe. You could try to flash the bios with the lastest update and see if that fixes things, however if your pc's taken a huge zap, then all of the components could be damaged.

Have you installed all the lastest patches for the hardware and windows on the machine. You may want to update any firmware/bios.

Is there any event log error messages?

Nope no error log as for drivers they are all up-to date . The computer worked fine for 5 days then I went on vacation when I came back I got a checksum and it started crashing . The battery checks out in tests btw

This may be reaching a bit, but .... a workstation here had a damaged PSU which was causing similar strange errors. Can you check that you didn't get any power strikes during your time off?

The system may have taken a big hit, hence the wierd problems. Have you got a spare PSU to swap out the current one for testing purposes?

I fixed the problem by turning off clock syncronizing with Microsoft's Time server very odd that win time was causeing the problem. Since What90 helped me the most with the problem he gets the points the only proble mi have now is a streak runnign down the LCD during Screensaver
