Already tried that one Sheila, after ages going through the motions, it just started up,

I've tried telling it off and threatened it, but still won't play ball, I'll try ibbo's idea and take memory out and reinstall

If you have more than one ram pull one out and reeboot , if it still same keep swapping to see if you can find if it’s a dodgy ram stick .

Yeah a DIMM is the memory attached to the mother board, if you can find a layout of your PC / mother board then you will know which DIMM to try and remove / re-insert (DIMM2).


Failing that you can go into the BIOS and clear previous error logs, which should resolve the issue as there are no logs (there for no previous errors) detected.
