Win ME. Pentum 111.Every OTHER time PC is switched on, it starts to boot up, then freezes. The only way to run PC is to switch off, then boot up again. It will boot up O.K. the second time.Also, if PC is left on for any lenghth of time but not used, it goes into "standby". When I try to use it again, screen is O.K., but everyhing is "Locked up " agin.
do you get any beeps on startup or error messages
No beeps or error messages
Do you get anything on the monitor when you start, and what colour is your monitor light - green, amber or red.If you feel confident enough take the case off and start your pc. Is the fan over the processor running or not?
Monitor light is green.Computer stops just before icons appear.Fan on processor is runnung
It sounds as if windows may be corrupted.Have you tried to boot into safe mode yet. when you start the pc keep tapping the f8 key and this will give you the option to boot into safe mode.When you are there then go to system restore (in start/programs/accessories/system tools/system restore)and select a restore point when the pc was working ok.
you might have to try clearing up some space on your hard drive by removing some programmes that you are not using .Also after removing the unwanted programs, try defragmenting the computer's hard drive and see if there are any changes.
I had similar problem with freezing, it turned out to be a faulty power supply unit.
did you have any success???
When I try (in safe mode)to restore to a restore point(I've tried 6),it goes through the motions, then on re-boot, a message says "The computer cannot restore to that date.This happens every time.
Any other ideas anyone?I thought that it may be to do with the processor overheating.how about running sfc /scannow in safe mode with your windows xp cd in the drive.
