Windows 7: Computer Crashes 1min after start up.

01 Dec 2010   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate (64-bit)
Computer Crashes 1min after start up.

Hi all,

Been having this problem lately.. I switch on my PC, it boots, and after a minute or two the whole system freezes; peripherals are not responding and I cannot access or do anything apart from view my screen which is stuck with the same image. I have attached a dxdiag of my 64-bit system aswell as a printscreen of my Event Viewer Log.

Thanks in advance.

if it only happens after a minute, it may be an overheating problem.

take the side of your case off to make sure all the fans are still spinning - most importantly your cpu fan!

I doubt it's the case 'mickey'.. Could it be due the fact that switch off the UPS after switching off the PC?
