    Hello. I recently posted on www.techsupportforums.com. I'm awaiting a reply from someone there.

    - My computer freezes randomly and I sometimes cannot get it too full boot up. The fan comes on and is very, very loud. the computer start-up does not respond. I get the message "Windows cannot start successfully - seconds until Windows starts". I can use the system but it's very difficult to boot up and I do not know when it'll freeze.

    Thank you,

    Hello Kirbycc,

    Does the fan sound normal or is there something extra?
    You seem to have few replies on TechSupport, but I would start with cleaning/dusting.
    Heat can explain all your problem and often the reason is the dust. It is also possible that there is something wrong with your fan too...
