    Hi all,
    Did a complete install of Win 7 a month ago - was running like a dream - last update did not complete correctly had to force a reboot - would not even post - after an hour it started finally did a restore - tried to put machine into sleep mode - would not go to sleep forced close again - now will not even post
    I don't think it is hardware - as all was working well till update
    Suggestions?
    Thanks
    Vix

    If the machine is not posting at all it must be a hardware problem without question. The post screen takes place before the hard drive is even accessed.

    Starts eventually

    but then when windows has to do a reboot it freezes and needs a cold reboot - if windows can't reboot that would appear to be software yes?
