i have a packard bell desktop pc at home,its about 10 years old.
i wont post the spec as i think the problem has little to do with the spec.
heres the thing...
its run for years without any problems,
no new hardware or software has been added prior to the problem starting.
when booted up from cold (i.e,when its been off for a few hours),
it stays on for a couple of mins then,either reboots its self or freezes.then when booted up again,its stays on a bit longer before rebooting or freezing.
only after a few boots does it work ok.
ive taken the memory out to make sure its seated ok.
ive also taken all the pci cards out,again to make sure they're seated ok.
ive run antivirus and trojan apps,nothing wrong there.
im at a loss ,if any of you guys have any ideas,id be glad to hear them.
thanks in advance,harrytb.
