Like heat or failing parts. The reload of the OS is typical when people have a failing PC.
i just dual booted vista and windows XP, the computer originally had windows XP but even that was a little messed up so i planed to restore to the factor setting. i did a full system recovery on XP and then installed VISTA on my other partition, when vista was all ready( it was working fine) i went to XP and i was installing internet explorer 7 and a blue screen appeared saying windows is shutting down to prevent the damage or some thing like that. so was restarted the computer after then i couldnt get on XP so i went to vista too see wat the problem was, i couldn't get into VISTA too it was just freezing at the Microsoft screen so i decided to recover XP and reinstall Vista but i couldnt do any of it because the computer just freezes after like 30 seconds.
does any one have any idea wat is going on on computer?? can some one help me
