I'm not sure if this is the right place to post this as I'm not sure if its a problem with vista or my hardware. For about a year or so my computer has had issues starting. When I first turn on my computer it could do one of two things. Either it could start normally and work fine or the screen will start flashing every 5 seconds or so. It flashes to the normal loading screen but the keyboard and mouse do not work and it doesn't actually function. The only way to get it to work is restarting it until it seems to load normally which could take 30 minutes of just restarting over and over again. When it does eventually start it works fine but if left on for a long time it will eventually freeze and crash and the computer won't turn on for hours (overheating probably?). I recently gave my computer to a Microcenter to run a diagnostic and repair it if they could but all they did was reinstall vista and tell me the problem was fixed (along with a lovely charge for having them fix it) but they didn't actually fix anything. I hope someone knows what the problem could be. Thanks in advance!
