Is there a difference between a computer re-booting and shutting down completely? Anyway, my pc sometimes will switch off randomly while i'm browsing the internet, and if i press the power button again right away, it goes green then shuts down again, so i usually have to wait atleast 10 minutes before i turn it back on. When i do this, the light on my monitor is orange for about 30 seconds, then finally goes green and i can see the screen, but sometimes i can only get it to continue to windows by pressing F1, other wise i just get a black screen with some errors on it (i'll let you know what they are when i see them again)
I had this same issue last year, and had 9 viruses removed, which worked for a while but cost me a lot of money. It seems weird that a virus would be able to shut down my computer and then not allow me to power it back up for another 5 minutes, so i'm starting to think it's hardware problems.
Can i get some help on this please? Thanks in advance!
