Windows 7: Freezing randomly and often will only start in Safe Mode

Freezing randomly and often will only start in Safe Mode

Hi,

My computer often freezes up. It is not from anything specific, I can be in My Documents, on the web etc. Once it freezes up, I have to manually turn it off and reboot.
Twice once rebooted, the login screen would not appear. All I would get was flashing back and forth from a black screen to the login screen. I then would manually reboot again, and enter in Safe Mode. Once doing this and using System Restore I could Login.
The freezing happens on a daily basis, multiple times a day.

Thanks,

Nicholle

What happens if you don't manually restart it when it freezes? I am having a similar problem with my computer freezing up too and I can't find a solution or narrow the problem down.

I cannot find a solution either. If I do not manually restart it will just stay exactly as it is frozen. I have tried letting it sit to see if eventually it will resume but it doesn't. It will stay on and stuck until you manually turn it off.
