Hi there,

I was hoping for more direct help as I'm been googling around and yet to find something that works.

After being away for a week on holiday I've come back to my computer playing up!

Basically, at random, the screen will freeze and either restart itself or just stay frozen (at which point I restart).

When I restart it just loops on and off unable to get up to the bit when the first writing comes up on the screen. It will indifinitely do this until it succeeds. Sometimes it loops when I turn it on but a lot of time it all appears normal until the screen freezes.

I have system restored to before I left and have also done the disk checking which was advised on another forum.

All my drivers appear to be up to date.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Windows 7 64 bit

Hello Horaldo

Can you provide the brand and model name or number details for the PSU, HDD and the MB and then do the following for us please;

Download Speedfan and install it. Once it's installed, run the program and post here the information it shows. The information I want you to post is the stuff that is circled in the example picture I have attached.
If you are running on a vista machine, please go to where you installed the program and run the program as administrator.

(this is a screenshot from a vista machine)

To capture and post a screenshot;

Click on the ALT key + PRT SCR key..its on the top row..right hand side..now click on start...all programs...accessories...paint....left click in the white area ...press CTRL + V...click on file...click on save...save it to your desktop...name it something related to the screen your capturing... BE SURE TO SAVE IT AS A .JPG ...otherwise it may be to big to upload... then after typing in any response you have... click on browse...desktop...find the screenshot..select it and click on the upload button...then on the lower left...after it says upload successful...click on add reply like you normally would.

Depending on the results we may need to run further software for comparison.

Screenshot instructions are provided to assist those that may read this topic but are not yet aware of the “how to”.

Go to Start then to Run/Search
Type in compmgmt.msc and click Enter
On left side click on Disk Management
On right side you will see your hard drive.
Now I need you to take a screenshot and attach it to your next reply.
Follow the same guidance to take a screenshot while the above is open and showing on your desktop.
