Question about Computers & Internet
Since about one week my acer desktop does not start instantly when pushing the powerbutton. At first it took about 10 seconds to start, by now it takes at least half a minute to start. Today the problem got worse. A BSOD appeared at first with a ntos kernel error, after a restart, a STOP: c000021a error appeared. The error occurs when the initial phase of starting Windows 7 is ongoing. I can see the colored dots, but halfway their dance, the screen turns black and nothing happens anymore. I ran several times the win7 repair tool but that did not solve the problem. I.e. halfway the repair program the screen turns black and nothing seems to happen anymore. My system is a Core i7, 10 Gb RAM, 1 Tb Main (bootup) HD, 250 Gb SSD with Windows 7 x64 (the SSD drivers run from the Main HD). Possibly both problems are not related, but since they occur more or less in a logical sequence I suppose they are in a way related. Any one an idea what causes this and / or how to solve this?

Refresh all the connection on your motherboard like ATX power supply, HDD and CD/DVD ROM cables, and specially the RAM. You may have to clean the RAM as shown in the image below.
then hopefully your computer will return to normal. Hope this helps.
