I'm using an old PC as my newer PC has fucked up & I'm not best pleased about it. It seems like an app is preventing it from opening up ? Turn on computer & all I get is the obligatory blue screen with the little white dots chasing each other round in a circle with the word "restarting". Like feck. I had it on for half an hour & it stayed the same. Don't know how to sort this problem out ? So, using this old PC, that is barely crawling along, for now.

Wanted to get a new computer on Black Friday. Kinda squandered that opportunity. The 2010 MBP is still alive, though it gets very hot sometimes, so I have to be careful how much I do at once.

{{Azreil- do you know how to get into the bios when it starts up? What version of windows are you on? That will help narrow down the steps- if you think it was an app of some sort screwed it then ideally you want to get into safe mode- this will boot up with just the min files needed for windows to run- you can then either try getting rid of the app once in, or if thats not working try a system restore point to restore your c to previous settings when it was working}}}

Ah, so it was a hardware bug. Congratulations on a creative solution.  Does it still run with everything plugged back in?

Hello Halfy, yes, so far all is well, just keeping my fingers crossed as I'm not a PC Bodkin by any means Smile
