My desktop which was bought in May 1997 and is running under Vista often gets stuck when switching on, with the display looping on the Vista loading bar. I can clear this eventually by continually switching off and on, but is driving me to distraction as it seems to happen (Sods Law) when I want access quickly.
I have thought of installing Windows 7 assuming that the problem is in the OS, but I thnk that it would be better to dump the desktop for a new one. I do not play games and only use the desktop for the WEB, printing photos and Microsoft Works. Can anyone recommend a suitable replacement desktop, preferably without the monitor, keypad or speakers?
