I have had huge problems with my mainframe PC on my network. It happened in a sequence over a week.
Firstly, everytime I tried to reboot it, the monitor screen would switch off and the computer lights were on, the only way to get the screen working was to pull the power and then turn the PC back on.
The next problem was as it was loading windows it would start to lockup, at all different stages, sometimes I could get it to load completely then it would lock, other times it would lock as soon as I started doing something.
For a couple of days I could get it to boot into safe mode and run some scans and in safe mode there were no freezing and locking up problems.
Now it boots up but the monitor is acting like its not working, lights are all on but noone is home ,the pc but the monitor seems to be on sleep mode. Ive tried everything to get it to work. Ive checked the monitor on another PC and no problem.
Another problem was when it was working, i tried system restore but it wouldnt work. I had installed Norton 360 and it seemed my problems all started escalating after that, so i tried restoring to an earlier time and it wouldnt allow it.
