Hard drive or PS failing

For the past month my home-built PC has been acting strangely.

First, the random restarts. Now I say random, but there might be a pattern to the restarts. This usually happens when I have several applications open. I can't say for sure, though, because other times it will happen when I simply have Firefox open.

Window errors: I'll often get messages telling me about unexpected serious Window errors.

Screen flickers: I have tried installing different games, and if the install goes as planned, I still can't start the game. I'll try opening it, my CRT monitor will try to readjust to the new resolution, and then my computer jumps back to the desktop.

Any ideas? I'm thinking it has something to do with my power supply or the hard disk itself. Thanks for the help.
