I have a computer that would boot "normally" it showed the wondows loading screen and then it would go black. The monitor was getting a signal but nothing happend. when u pressed the power to shut down only holding 5 seconds would turn off the computer. To boot again you needed to unplug the computer wait 30 sec. and then boot. If I went into safemode I had full control but when reset even after trying to use system recovery the same happend.
I tried to repair but it would ask for files but did not give me access to the cd.
I saved my data and formated the computer.
Fresh installation after not touching for 30 min (aproximitly I would go do something) it would do the same. but would restart OK.
I disabled system stand by and hibernation.
I installed office and acrobat reader and then it froze up again.
Any advice would b nice.
