Hi Calmrade and welcome to SevenForums.

Need more details on the problem please?
When did this start to happen?
Did you install anything prior to this problem?
I would also recommend running the sfc /scannow command: SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

A few months ago, I've had my pc for a little over two years. I've installed team speak , battlefield, origin, windows security, and chrome. I've had this problem for a while though. I've re installed Windows 7 at least 5 times over the last year. I even bought a new HDD about 2 weeks ago and it still happens. Idk what other details would help.

Ok does it happen the minute you reinstall windows? Or after you have everything up and running?

Did you run the sfc /scannow command?

Once I have my basic programs installed, but it feels like even if I didn't install anything that its more of a matter of time and it will happen either way. It not starting at the moment so I'm gonna flick the motherboard battery out because that usually seems to be the only way it will start back up. But then my computer is in 2010 and I update the time after.

Hi Calmrade, welcome to the Seven Forums.

This is quite typical issue caused by Winsock.

Simple fix:
Open Elevated Command Prompt, type following command to reset Winsock:
Code:
netsh winsock reset
Reboot and CTRL + ALT + DEL should work as before.

It could be a program that is causing it.

You are taking out the RTC battery? (Real Time Clock) / Could be the CMOS depending on the motherboard.

Did you try to boot into safe mode and see if it happens then? Advanced Boot Options

@Calmrade:

Please try the fix in my previous post before doing anything overly dramatical.

Well my real problems is that my computer will boot up normally maybe 1 out of ten times. I usually to the battery trick. And I don't know what the battery is but it a little nickel sized one on my mb. I just don't understand why my pc shuts down randomly and won't start up normally. I'm on it now, so I'll try what you guys recommended and let you know after.

This means you have far more serious problems than winsock waiting to be reseted.

Please post your complete issue, problems you are having with your PC in here: BSOD Help and Support - Windows 7 Help Forums

I believe that would be the best forum for you to post.
