Specs: Windows 7, 2,4Ghz/1G
My emachines with 2.0GB memory running win7 freezes randomly, mostly when it has shown the password screen, sometime when i login after that screen, it freezes.
the mouse and even numlock light cannot be controlled. i have to reboot.
i does not boot to safe mode, it freezes after showing the list of files win7 is loading.
i can't boot from cd rom either, it just woon boot even when i set the cdrom as the first startup device and even when i use F12 to manually set the boot device

what do i do now, please help

✔ Best Answer
Could be a failing power supply, mainboard, CPU, or memory. I'd test the power supply first.
Since you can't boot from the CDROM, if you know the device is good (works in another system), that points to a mainboard failing, especially with all the other events considered.

The drive is bad. You might try a firmware update if it is available.
