Also check, if you are getting any errors in the Event viewer and if you are getting any, do provide us the details. To open event viewer follow the below mentioned steps:

1. Click the Start button then click Control Panel in this click System and Maintenance.
2. Now click Administrative Tools, and then double-click Event Viewer. If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
3. Click an event log in the left pane.
Double-click an event to view the details of the event.
