only sometimes i start my comp up and the fan starts but nothing loads,  if i turn it on and off from the back eventually it will load.  other times it loads fine but when your desktop pops up and you try to open an icon nothing happens. when you try to stut it down after trying to open an icon it will freeze before shutting down. one other time it started fine but i had no power to my keyboard till i rebooted a few times.

i am about to loose it on this comp lol i have no idea what could be causing these problems and would appreciate any tips anyone can offer

thanks everyone

Make sure that your Operating System and Internet Explorer are up-to-date by visiting the Windows Update Site  and downloading all of the Critical Updates and Service Packs.

If you haven't scanned you computer for viruses lately Update your virus definitions and scan your computer.

You can try this free online scanner using Housecall

Also open your case and blow out the dust bunnies, the fans get pretty dirty.
