So I've had this computer for about 3-4 years and have never had any problems with it. Just in the last week or two my computer has been turning off as I try to start it up. It always gets past the black screen boot menu and the black screen "your computer was shut down improperly"(my paraphrase) which has safe mode options and stuff. Once it gets to the black screen with the windows logo and the loading green bar (kind of like green rectangles for the loading bar) it will just turn off. At first putting in my windows vista os disk and doing startup repair was working, but now it is taking several attempts with the disk to be able to even sign on. I've tried safe mode and using last good configuration as well and they are all equally successful. If it counts, this began when I was not hooked up to the internet, so I doubt a virus is to blame.
Also, once I get to the blue login screen I am home free. My computer has never crashed/turned off from this point on.
If anyone can make some suggestions as to what is the least costly way of fixing this, that'd be great.
