On occasions when I start my pride and joy it fails to boot up I then pull the plug and restart and it is fine it will recognise the hardware then its screen go,s blank and a promt in the top right hand corner appears and the only way to get it running again is to do the above any idea,s freinds
My P.C. it goes through its start up the beeb code sounds the bios then recognises the hard drive and both c.d. drives then it fails to load windows if I pull the plug and start again this usally works its a bit of a pain. Thanks for your qwick response
