My computer keeps hanging and I have to restart. Usually it's when windows is started. Today it froze a few times and I restarted but then it wouldnt start even past the motherboard screen, or sometimes past that but then after a few more screens it went black and i had to restart again. I was lucky one time and i pressed f8 and I'm working in safe mode atm. This is not a new problem, here is a paste from asking on oct 20:

recently everything keeps freezing. i'm doing something and i see that stupid circle and i click nad nothing happens or the window fades. if i go ctrl alt del it won't respond and if it does it takes a long time and clicking end process on a program does nothing. even this firefox window froze a few times in this session. while i was typing this it froze but came back luckily.

most of the time i have to hold my power button and turn it off and restart.

a while ago today, after a freeze i got a blue screen and something about dumping and then a restart. i searched the intnret for how to see what it said but no luck.

what do i do to fix this issue? i'm going crazy and google is no help.

Post specs on the machine in question and there will be a greater chance of a response. Make/Model and any other info you may feel will facilitate the troubleshooting process.
Have you tried removing all peripherals?
System Restore?

I tried removing all peripherals it didn't fix the issue. The only system restore point is 01/11.
