Question about Computers & Internet
Boot to a Windows Operating System CD ROM and do a clean installation (You'll be prompted to choose a partition before the format screen appears, make sure to choose "NTFS Normal" and not "NTFS Quick" when prompted to format). This will wipe the harddrive and get rid of any problems you may have, since you can't even boot to "Safe Mode", cause if you can I would suggest running a full virus scan with up to date definitions in Safe Mode to see if any viruses are causing your PC's problems and possibly fix them.

Initially, I suspect a hardware fault. Perhaps you can try to open the casing, remove the memory and clean the little gold tips with the use of a pencil eraser. Should there be any add-on card, you might as well clean them likewise. In some instances, similar problems were resolved by doing a reset on the CMOS/BIOS by temporarily moving the appropriate jumper to the opposite pair and back. Alternately, the same effect could be achieved by simply removing the back-up/memory battery for a couple of minutes.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.
