Greetings to all .... Re "I was just curious to see if anybody else had that problem"
I too have had this problem. About 3/4 days ago I installed something like 9 updates from MS, something I do as a normal function of keeping my PC "up to date". No apparent problem, the tower turned off after the updates had done there thing at the end of my day.
Next day is when the problem started. Try as I might, I could not get my PC to boot, it just "hung". The reset button produced the same result. I switched off manually at the back of the tower, restarted, slipped in my Win 7 installation CD, switched off manually at the back of the tower again and rebooted. This seemed to do the trick and I used the PC all day, shutdown as usual OK. Next day I am back to being "hung" !!
Three days later I still get the same apparent "hung" situation and in frustration I opened my laptop to search for solutions. About 10 minutes later my PC decides it's OK to open up now, by itself from the "hung" situation ???? As I type this on my laptop some 3 hours later, my PC is still running. I fully expect to get a "hung" situation tomorrow!
Why/what is happening? Dont ask me, I haven't a bent clue!! I have made Win 7 repair disc, but haven't learnt how to use it yet.
