Freezing and Unresponsive PC

by BridgetteWuvsYou / March 26, 2013 10:28 AM PDT

For the last month or so, my PC has been freezing and becoming unresponsive lately. Several windows will pop up saying that Windows can not be found, please uninstall and reinstall. Some of them say that this it's unable to find a component. All of them say something different. CTRL + ALT + DELETE is unresponsive as well as holding in the power button on the CPU. This is resulting in me having to just pull the plug from the wall and reboot. It reboots and says Unable to locate component. Once I hit okay a few times, it's fine. Then a few days later, I have to go through that process all over again. Is there something wrong with my registry log? Any info will help. Thanks!!

I had a Dell and didn't like it, so I went back to my old one. All I know is that it's an Windows HP?
