Well, whenever I try to install or reformat my PC, it seems to randomly go idle during the process. The screen goes out, but the CD tray continues to spin and the PC seems to stay on, if anything crank up the speed of the fans. I'm forced to power off the PC, and start over each time. It first did it when I tried to upgrade to the Win7 RC, then I thought it might've been time for a clean wipe anyways, I tried to reformat via the HP Recovery disc, and finally I went out and bought a brand new copy of Vista. Like an idiot, I bought an upgrade disc, and I'm currently trying the clean install workaround. I think it might be overheating, but I'm not entirely sure. I got through enough to install an unactivated copy of Vista, but when I try to upgrade to my activated version, it does it. I'm out of ideas, so maybe you guys could help.
