erratic performance and start up, is this hardware failure? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Help ! My computer windows 7, 64 bit is driving me mad - sometimes it won't start at all for 24 hrs, then decides to work, sometimes with no signal to screen, starts then shuts down during boot or shuts down having been on and working, mouse freezes, key shortcuts not responsive, sometimes task manager non responsive, sometimes shut down accompanied by tower beeps but not always , noisy fan no start up, sometimes screen pixilates purple and black. Have backed up all files as am getting close to giving up on it. Is this likely to be hardware failure?

    Have run security scan - no probs no events.

    loads of memory left

    checked error log -there are loads but none recognised by the link to microsoft boot 100,110,300, 101,200 critical to warning
