Press and keep tapping F8 when the computer is starting.

Choose safe mode.

Start > Run > Type:


Click ok.

Then click advanced > Settings (Third one) > Remove the tick from Automatically Restart > Click ok.

Let it boot into windows. Next time the computer shuts down you'll see a blue screen. Write down all the information. Post back and we'll see what we can do form their.

When your in Normal Windows (as above) but click, Hardware > Device Manager > Are there and ! marks?

Also scan for a virus.
