PC Won't reboot

September 13, 2009 at 13:05:50
Specs: Windows XP
My PC won't re-boot anymore on its own, I have to cold start it.

Further, I am also having issues typing. I can type one minute then all of a sudden I can no longer type. Sometimes it takes 2 to 3 cold starts for me to be able to type.

Vaner, SWAG, may not have anything to do with it, but worth a try. Won't do any harm. A common ailment is a file called 'index.dat'. It gets read every time and can take quite a while if it’s too bloated. It's like a log file and keeps a record of every site you visit on the web. Empty, it's 32K, but it can grow HUGE. It's a protected file and can't be deleted by normal methods. CCleaner (free @: http://www.ccleaner.com/) can get rid of it when it’s ticked (not to worry, it gets rebuilt EMPTY on the next boot.).
