|I'm looking at a computer for a friend. Whilst relatively experienced I pretty new to dealing with issues on Vista. I've had a good search around on Computing.Net and on-line but can't seem to find a resolution to the issue I've got.|
The computer boots up and gets to the scrolling bar page before it shuts down. However, when it shuts down the computer seems to go into some sort of sleep mode as the Num Lock light is still on on the keyboard (this may be a feature of VIsta/the computer). If I press a key on the keyboard the computer comes back to life and, via the Error Recovery screen. will start up until the same point before shutting down.
I can enter the computer in Safe Mode and have turned off all Services and Startup components via MSCONFIG. This had no effect when I restart. I've also done a System Restore with no effect. I ran a Vista Recovery CD through as well, again, with no effect.
Can anyone give me any hints?
Many thanks in advance.
