Windows 7: Computer Shuts Down Before Loading Windows Repair Disk

Computer Shuts Down Before Loading Windows Repair Disk

This a fairly difficult problem to explain but I'll do my best with what I've experienced so far. When booting my PC with any Windows Disk.....Windows 7 Home Premium or a Windows 7 Repair CD I made on this computer.....the computer boots, finds the cd starts loading windows files....then will shut down immediately. All other bootable disks I have tried... Acronis, UBCD, etc boot just fine, and I have no problem. The same problem described above, happens exactly the same way when using bootable USB Flash Drives with Windows repair on it. The CD's and flash drives boot perfectly on other computers. I also discovered that when I pressed F8 at boot and try to do Windows repair that way, the computer also shuts down immediately. The same thing happened when I tried to do the Windows 7 Memory diagnostic at boot. Seems any Windows related repair/diagnostic is shutting it down. Very'd think the Windows Media would work if nothing ellse would.

I solved my own problem. Opened up the case, blew out all the dust, removed, memory (2, 1GB sticks, video card, sound card....and cleaned the contacts for all these parts. Put the memory back in one stick at the time and tested to see if the computer would boot from the Windows Repair disks and it did boot with each stick seperately and then together. I was also able to run the Windows memory diagnostic and/or Windows repair from the F8 menu when booting. I'm guessing there was a problem with dirty contacts on the memory or the video or sound card. In any case the computer has been running for about 24 hrs now and boots anything I want.
