  • Question

  • I have an custom built tower. It has an Asus a55bm-a/usb3 motherboard, and 8 gig of ram. I have removed ALL other hardware with the exception of the hard drive and dvd drive. Please note that this problem occured before and after I removed all other hardware from the computer. This problem ALSO occured after I preformed a CLEAN install of Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit, which I upgraded (clean install) from the original Windows Professional 64bit installed by the company who built the tower.

    I have had this computer for 2 years. i have never had a problem with it until a week ago. I was surfing the net and my computer screen went blank, my tower lost power and restarted all at the same time. after It restarted i selected "start Windows Normally" and after logging into windows, I did nothing. About 30-45 seconds later, it shut down and restarted again.  This time I started in "safe mode" I opened every program I could and let the computer sit overnight.  Came back the net morning, and still running just as i left it the night before. Rebooted, started "normally" sanf thing happened over and over and over. I removed all hardware, and the problem still existed. decided to reinstall windows. After the "Clean" install not upgrade, still happened, so I decided to switch to windows Ultimate, and the same problem still occured. I am writing this on the problemed computer in safe mode, which is the only time the problem does not occure.

  • Sounds like it could possibly be a bad HDD, some sectors may be corrupt and those sectors may not be accessed while it's running in safe mode. Have you run a CHKDSK, or do you have a second HDD you can install Windows on to test that way?
