Are you using a Core i7 and is it overclocked?

Try the solution listed below, i think it will help you out...

press F11 key at boot-up?
---> START > Control Panel > Administrative tools or shorter way:

--> START > run > type compmgmt.msc --> Enter

--> then Disk management

--> Find which is recovery partition

--> Make Mark partition as Active

--> Then restart pc.

kevintechie's post is spam - plus the website linked to is suspect - steer clear.

  lotvic 12:24 13 Feb 10 classifies as PSH - sites engaged in Phishing

so my advice is to keep away from it.

check power management & see if keeping power always on helps. i had similar trouble with i7 860 processor.

Looks like the PC is going to sleep. Usually the Windows key wakes it.
Ctrl+ shift+Esc in W
