    For some reason when I boot up my computer, it occasionally freezes. It will load windows, and it just freezes. When it does freeze, it usually doesn't even make it far enough to load the background. Also, at times it will randomly reboot, I'll be sitting there typing, and it will reboot. Any help is welcome!

    Sounds as if it could be heat releated.

    OPen the case and clean out dust bunnies.

    Also, make sure you AV is up to date and do a complete scan.

    Disconnect the power and carefully use your vaccum hose. If you have a way to blow vs. vaccum that should be done also.

    That didn't help a whole lot, I tried, but nothing much seems to have happened.
