Hi Everyone (my first post here!)

I have recently bought a new PC with Vista and it won't start up every time

If i leave it off over night or whilst I am at work and then try to start it up. 9 times out of 10 it freezes on the windows loading scolling bar screen (you know the black one with "microsoft" on it).

If I leave it 10 minutes I may or may not get a blue screen error message.

However if i push the reset botton on the case when it appears to freeze and fire it up again 80% of the time it starts.
All this restarting canot be good for it - I have alreday corrupted the Graphics Driver once! (which is now fixed)

Has anyone ever heard of this before and if so any suggestions?

Thanks for taking the time to read this! :whistling:
