Hello,

20 days ago, I have had severe problems with my computer. Most of them I could fix by myself, but this exceeds my possibilities. So, one day my PC suddenly turned off. I didn't do anything, so I started it up again, and I chose the "Start Windows normally" option. What scared me is this: I couldn't get past the "Starting Windows" screen, BECAUSE: my monitor turned off. Umm, not like it turned off, but you know when you do nothing on a computer for a while and the screen turns black. I knew it because when it was in that "sleep" state, a light would blink on the edge of my monitor. It did the same now. I manually turned it off and started windows repair, it "repaired" it, and look what it said:

Startup Repair repair log
-----------------------------
Number of repair attempts: 1

Session details
-------
System Disk = \Device\Harddisk0
Windows directory = E:\Windows
AutoChk Run = 0
Number of root causes = 1

And the rest are some kind of tests, which were successfully launched with the error code 0x0. I rebooted and COULD get back onto my PC.

Now, it turned off again. I turned it on and couldn't see the repair option, so I pressed start windows normally.
I got past the loading windows screen, but I got a Blue screen of Death, and it said something like: Dumping physical memory to disk
And when it reached 100% my PC rebooted, and the same, I mean, I couldn't get past the windows loading screen cuz my monitor "slept."

Somehow I entered the windows repair screen, I repaired it again, and got past the loading windows screen. BUT, what next happened is, windows couldnt load. I think so, because I only saw the cursor and the background was black..





So, I reinstalled windows, and the same problem is happening!

Win7 ultimate 32bit
Radeon 3650
Amd Phenom 8450 2.1 GHz
Ram memory: 2

I know my pc sucks but until i get a new one, this is it.

If it is a desktop you would have to open the side and find the information on the PSU
