Hi everyone, I'm experiencing some very frustrating problems with my computer, and was wondering if anyone might have an idea what's going on.
Right, it all started a week or so ago. I used the computer first thing in the morning before I went to work - fine. No problems at all. Then, when I got back from work in the evening, the computer froze on the Windows loading screen. I restarted and got the black screen saying 'Windows could not be loaded due to a recent hardware or software change....' blah blah blah. I knew it couldn't possibley be a hardware problem since I hadn't touched the inside. So I decided to reformat the hard drive to eliminate the problem.
I did that, and got up and running again. I installed all my usual programs/drivers I use and awaited for Windows to finish installing it's downloaded update. Back on track, right? Wrong! I restarted after the install, and I got the black screen again. I selected 'last settings which worked', and I got into Windows. As soon as I logged into my account, the whole thing froze.
What is going on?! :cry: I'm thinking that there must be some sort of problem occuring shortly after connecting to the internet, perhaps a program. But I'm not downloading anything that I haven't used in the past, so I'm totally confused :sad:
Any help would be VERY greatly appreciated.
