Bad hard drive? or bad repair place?

my computer...the one im using now...works for about five minutes and then freezes up or goes to a ghost screen.

Im no computer wizzard but if the hard drive... show more my computer...the one im using now...works for about five minutes and then freezes up or goes to a ghost screen.
