What you are describing is what is known as a Kernel Panic.

Basically this happens when the operating system itself "crashes".

Unfortunately the cause could be anything. But there are some things you can do to try to narrow down the cause.

Have you recently changed any hardware on your system? Faulty hardware could easily be a cause.

Are any of the same applications running when it crashes? Applications can have bugs in them that bring down the OS.

Try to think about what you did right before this started happening..

Hope this helps.
