HI,
I've read thru many post, and would like someones take on my problem. My Computer has recently been shutting down while in use and then getting windows to run run is pretty tough. I get a message saying "windows failed to start... a recent hardware or software change might be the cause" after I do what is suggested by the computer, the computer seems to work fine but then it shuts down again, and go thru the some process over again.

The only things i have recently done to the computer is buy a new graphics card, and 1.5 years ago I added some RAM.

if you need more information please ask me.

Thanks

I have tried the startup repair several times, and it always says " windows has detected a fatal error..."
It recommmends that I start up windows with safe mode and update any new hardware I have. That seems to work but a couple minutes later it crashes again. I have done this about 4 times.

Try uninstalling your new graphics card driver and see how it goes.

I am not sure if there are specific requirements to install the graphics card you got which your system might not apply to.
