Windows 7: Need several attempts to start-up

Need several attempts to start-up

Just this week my PC has been having trouble starting up. Fails & restarts again by itself before even the ''motherboard page' appears on screen. Finally it 'kicks in' and I'm back online.


(Current hassles besides this are BSOD unsolved & screen-crash due to video card also unsolved.)

As a first step check your hard drive with chkdsk see if it's corrupted

Do you live near the sea? (oxidation - corrosion?)
Did you do a memory test?

Had this same problem a few years back. Video card was failing caused by known problem,heat ( should have cleaned the box long before, I have since made schedule). Anyhow the failing card was tripping out the overload safety of the PSU on boot. Very random and sometimes took three or four tries to start.

I have Open Hardware Monitor, a small program that shows the temperatures on the task bar and a small window on the desktop that you can configure to show used memory and GPU temp.

My experience is that multiple attempts needed to restart a computer has always shown that the power supply is dying.

maximum password attempts
I have a laptop with windows 7 premium 64bit. I was wondering if there was a default maximum logon attempts when installed. I have been trying to enter my password (or so I thought) and I cannot log on. Also is it also possible that this is a virus because I don't remember changing my password.
