Last night my computer logged me off and then restarted itself. When it came back on it only loaded to the Bios but only up to the point where I can hit F2 and then the screen turns black and nothing more happens.
Running Windows 7 on an HP Pavilion Elite e9140f Desktop PC Quad Core that is 2-3 years old. At the time of "crash" I was downloading files through IE. with 6 windows open. I also had Zune Media Player playing music. At first IE closed all its windows, so I restarted my session and then it did it 2 more time. That 3rd time I reopened the windows, everything loaded up without a problem. Then it closed out again, but this time closed Zune Media Player, logged me off and rebooted. At first I just thought that I missed a clicking ignore/wait 4 hours to install some windows updates because thats exactly how the computer turned off. It wasn't a sudden stall or immediate shutdown, but rather a closing of all windows, logging me off and then restarting. Only this time the Windows logo never turned on.
sCurrent Antivirus is Norton 360 and its updated regularly.
Thanks for your help in advance,
