Problem : Windows freezes after 5 mins of restart , only mouse moves and only hard manual reset option.
Few months back my pc used to hang/freeze when left it idle, so i installed mouse - mover to make the mouse keep moving and it worked.
I think it started after i was using 3rd party file restore software which can dig out old deleted files... could it be that it caused some corrupt data error ?
It works in safe mode with no problem, but i have one more problem which is the back light of laptop screen stopped working ( few years back ) and it goes off in few minutes or seconds and could only be seen with some light ( torch ) . So i was using my TV as external monitor for few years now with no problem but it does not work in safe mode. Is there a way to make it work in safe mode ?
Steps i have taken till now :
1)i tried clean boot from safe mode with startup items ( all off ) and services all off ( excluding the microsoft services ) but it did not help.
2) I tried disk check but no use
chkdsk was stuck for 10 hours at step ( 4 of 5 ) no disk light .
I restarted and restored to cancel it since it was stuck in a loop....
3) i tried memory check but could not see the logs since when it reached enter password it was stuck.
4) system restore point also no use
5) im thinking of running a FULL Malwarebytes and norton scan ,,,but i have a feeling it will be useless... :/
I have the vista cd which came with laptop ...but my CD rom stopped working years back.
PC specs :HP laptop , 3gb ram , Windows vista home premium sp 2 , 32 bit OS
So what i can do to try to fix it . since i do not have money for new one
