So, yesterday, in the morning I booted my computer, took 2 prints, shut it down, went to school.
Came back, booted it, and found that it took a bit too much time to even boot into the BIOS. My computer has been getting slow lately, so I didn't think much of this, until the screen went blank after "Starting Windows", and just that.
SO I forced reboot into safe mode, uninstalled a recent "Port Open Checker" software, and restarted. Everything worked fine, I booted and shut down successfully at least 2 times in the day. Means it was working fine, and I thought problem solved.
Today morning, again, it did the same thing. So I booted into safe mode again, did a quick virus scan with MSE, and restarted, booted normally successfully (use last good configuration didn't work either)
What's going wrong?
I'll provide more info if needed but I dunno what's relevant.
Extra details: My PC is 6 years old now, which only the HDD and GFX card being new. I have 4 GB DDR2 RAM (Upgraded from 2GB 4 months ago, only to find my Windows 7 32bit doesn't support more that 2.98GB) and an old Gigabyte GL Motherboard which shows the BIOS' date as 2009.
Also, 2 months ago I had to format my PC because after an update Windows 7 went into a reboot loop and I just couldn't fix it, tried EVERYTHING, including system restore.
So this time I haven't done any updates other than .NET Framework and graphics driver updates, on this Windows 7 Service Pack 1 32 bit OS.
I've also been recently keeping the computer on with a download going on in the background (since my net speed is really slow), while I did my homework and stuff.
