hello, turned on comp and it went to windows loading screen, stayed there for bout a min then the screen went black and stayed like that till turned it off. turned on again and prompted to do a repair but it coudlnt fix anything but said the comp had failed to start. what could this be a sign of ? is my comp dying ? :(
sounds like your windows install is borked. See if you can get into safe mode (f8 before windows tries to boot)
after restarting a couple times it went to the black screen but then the next time it loaded past it and worked like normal. anything i should do ?
Maybe your windows is malfunctioning?...Are you using XP?...
Check the logs (right-click My Computer > Manage > Event Viewer). Post any errors.
i am using vista 32 bit, cant find any manage
It should be the same on Vista 32-bit.
Click on the Start Menu, then right-click the "Computer" item in the list (Do not open "My Computer").
Then Manage should be in the list.
It seemed like during previous updates, my copy of Vista 32-bit would do the same. I let it run, and it took it about 15 minutes to finish booting. Not sure what it was doing. I suspected that my graphics card was having difficulty with the resolution being used. It wouldn't be the first time.
I've got an old Athlon XP processor, and a Geforce 6800 graphics card.
ok thx found it, in the last 24 hours ive had 4 errors: event id: 15016 source: httpevent log:system is it only recent ones or should i post em all ?
