When it is warmed up and I either press "restart" or I shut down and start it while it is still warm......No problems!
It is clean of virusses..ect....I even went to a restore point of a month ago... no change...
I used to have an old HP that was doing something similar, that got so bad that it wouldn't even start up unless I warmed it up in the morning with a hair blower.....a month of that and I figured I needed a new one.
I have two scenarios left to consider....
1) A hard drive that is starting to take to much time to get to operating speed when cold?
2) There could be a thermocouple/ sensor somewhere in there that keeps a PC from starting in extreme cold and it's getting weaker as time goes on...?
3) Is there something I can change in the boot menu? (That would be where I need help) I haven't played in there since '98
So I need a geek for advice......or other option I haven't thought of???????
