Try starting in safe mode and see if it works.Just keep tapping F8 or F5 as the computer starts.

If it opens you have the options off.Last good configuration.System Restore.system repair.

Try the ones I mentioned one at a time to see if any of them lets you boot up properly.

I suppose you could also try command prompt and type in sfc /scannow and see if it finds any problems.

You do not need the W7 Cd to run that.

many thanks one and all, it looks like the hot weather was to blame, it happened to be a coincidence that these random shut down's started after the MS updates had loaded as I said in my original post, my little bedroom / office got very hot 30+ on Monday now it's cooler no more problem's. regards
