  • Hi,

    If the hardware are fine, let us troubleshoot on the system side.

    I suggest we perform clean boot. Clean Boot prevents software conflicts by preventing the startup items and non Microsoft services from loading. This way you can safely follow the process of elimination to check which application is causing this behavior.
     
    Refer:
    How to troubleshoot a problem by performing a clean boot in Windows Vista or in Windows 7

    Note: Ensure that you put your computer back to normal startup mode after completing the troubleshooting steps. Steps are available in the article given above.

    Regards,
