Hi everyone
There are a number of reasons I have joined the group. Computers fascinate me,although I get confused really easy. As long as I have manuals,I can do pretty good,even having installed a hard drive,more memory,dvd player,etc. We have a problem now with our older generic computer. When I press the start button,it begins all right up to the point of the Windows opening. then the computer shuts down as if the power was turned off.Then the tart button has no effect unless I unplug the computer and then plug it in again. Then it does the same thing continuously,after a minute or so. Sometimes the start button doesn't have any effect. Once there was a window which said there is a problem with disk consistency and it proceeded to do three checks,but then the computer shut down again. It has worked great for about three years.Has the computer had it for good,or does anyone have any ideas about what we might try. We don't have a Windows installation CD. Thanks for listening. Charles

Try to do a chkdsk in command prompt by typing in chkdsk/f/r. That may or may not work but good luck.
