I have an E-machine that is about 3 1/2 to 4 yrs old. As of recently, my computer will start to boot up and then just freeze. If I play around with it, starting it and stoping it I can get it to finally load. It also will not fire up the monitor sometimes. I went out and purchased a new monitor. That didn't help, returned to store. I bought a new video card, no luck there either. Both problems still persist. I am considering reformating the computer after I have backed up all of our Family photos( the reason for the computer). Has anyone else had this issue or does anyone know what the problem might be? I am game for all suggestions and solutions!
