I'm having issues with my computer that I hope somebody out there can help me with, there a few Things I need to explain so bear with me.


A typical rutine at the moment is me starting my pc with no problems, but after a few minutes it crashes and starts up again, then the fun begins. Sometimes the Bios will make what sounds like one long and 3/2 small beeps, which I've heard is the code for Video Card error and the screen will not Work. The Bios issue sometimes also come without a crash preceeding it. Then I have to constantly try and restart the computer until it will start normally, however this time it will take ages and sometimes it will just turn off after a period of time or crash again during startup. When it finally start again after the original crash, there is nothing weird besides a frustrating low performace on games etc. etc.


If anyone can point me towards what might cause these issues and possible fixes I would be gratefull.


In advance, thanks.

Can we assume that all of your updates have been run for your OS, your security program and that your graphics drivers are current? If so then you may be looking at a haardware problem. Is this a desktop or a laptop?
