Hi again Folks

Just when I thought I could get going again, another problem!
Having sorted things as detailed, I've been merrily trying to get my computer back to some semblance of what it was, re-installing stuff etc. BUT suddenly three times now I've been beavering away for about 20 mins, and my mouse freezes, I can't do anything, and the computer switches off. If I restart the only message I get is that 'windows didn't shut down correctly etc. do I want a normal or safe start'. Nothing else, another 20 min session and the same again.

Again any ideas please?

Work through these Troubleshooting Steps for Windows 7.

If you can't stay running long enough to complete the steps then Troubleshoot Windows 7 Failure to Boot.

Just a thought gregrocker, sometimes when I re-boot, it's showing that the CPU is overheating and on further examination of the BIOS I can see CPU temp of about 80 C and MB temp of 28 C, but I don't know what is acceptable.

Looking on Google it seems this could cause the symptoms I'm getting? Apart from cleaning the fan & heatsink (which I don't think are clogged or dirty) what could I do?

The temp is too high for Core I5 so I would re-evaluate your cooling system, blow out any dust in heatsink and elsewhere, consider repasting the heatsink if indicated, perhaps add a case fan. You can adjust variable fan speeds upward with Speedfan.

Videos are available via googling for showing how to repaste almost any CPU.

You can more closely monitor the CPU temps from the System tray with Core Temp.

Thanks again gregrocker, eventually I contacted the manufacturer who thought that reducing the clocking might help, so they talked me through the process and it now seems 'stable' and I'm keeping everything crossed!

Again many thanks for your help (and others on this forum), it really is appreciated.
