I've had this problem for about...6-7 months now. It can run fine for many weeks (it lasted 4 weeks before it started acting up)...but suddenly, as the computer turns on it will get right before you login to windows and then my PC resets.
It says "fatal system error", and asks if I want to scan my PC for errors and if it finds any it will fix them. I've let it scan a few times, but it never finds any errors. After the first few times, I just tell it to restart and skip the scanning. Sometimes it keeps giving a fatal system error, sometimes it logs right on.
Eventually I can get into Windows and when I get on the desktop in the event viewer, it gives a fatal system error occured "blue screen". Nothing really shows up in the event viewer that is any use.
It does say however "System powered down or lost power unexpectedly". Even though I turn off my PC the correct way. I never force the PC to be turned off.
The strange thing is, I can leave my PC on for days...and it has 0 problems. The only time it has problems is starting up. All my games run great and many are very computer intensive, no errors when using the PC...windows update is normal...no problems at all. It only blue screens on starting up the PC. And that can happen 4-6 times in a row, even with fully unpowering the PC...or it can happen once or twice...but eventually I can get into my PC and it runs fine.
I did a full scan on my hard drive, and my hard drive returned 0 errors. I've also done many virus scans (with a computer tech) and even had the computer tech look through my PC hardware, but no viruses were found and he couldn't find any hardware problems.
So, any of you guys have any idea of what this strange thing could be? It isn't really a major problem, because I can run my computer fine. Its just, once in a while, starting up is a challenge.
