If it happens at 'random' times, and won't restart immediately, most likley it's overheating due to dust blocked heat sink / fan (or a bad fan)

If it always happens at the some point in the boot up before you get the password prompt .. most likley it's s/w

Hit F8 during power up.. select 'last known good'

If that fails, F8 and select 'Safe Mode'

If you get into Safe Mode, uninstall whatever you last installed that is causing the lock up (most likley some hardware driver or some virus/root kit you got via email)

My cf-w7 hang after abt 15 mins


If this just started roll it back by with System Restore. Under Safe Mode (press F8 during boot and choose Safe Mode).


In Win 7 - Start > Start > Search type System Restore.


In XP - Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Restore. Now choose a date prior to problem. You may have to try a few dates.


There is the option of uninstalling last program(s) that was installed, again in safe mode.

You also try disabling startup programs. Go to Start > Run (search in Win 7) and type MSConfig. In Startup tab, uncheck anything that you don't want Windows to load automatically. It will make Windows boot faster and use less resources while running. This just disables them in startup. Programs will still load, but when only you initiate.

Boots up windows runs for 5 mins then system shuts


You may have a cooling problem (with older computers), if you hear your fan running excessively and then it shuts down on you. Otherwise it is more likely a hard drive issue.

Scan your PC with a good antivirus like avast which support boot scan;it will solve your problem if it is caused virus,worm or malware.

Sometimes system hangs when a porgram start to load during bootup too.
for troubleshooting this,boot your system in sfae mode during startup by pressing F8.Click "start" then "Run" type "msconfig" select "startup" tab untick all the program and restart your system.

PC hangs or reboots due to overheating of the CPU.It is caused by dust and dirt contamination inside.open the system and blow it with a small air blower.
