    Windows is shutting down as if I requested it. Gives me the same window you get that has logoff, restart, stand by and cancel only it won't allow me to do any of this. Of course this happens at my parents home while they are gone :eek: and while trying to figure it out what the problem is, they call & ask me to send them something via email so I rush home to do so on my own pc! I will now take mine back to their house and return to techguy for some help I hope?
    more details:
    Windows starts up and gives me about 2 minutes to get somewhere before ) and once I get the msg then pc is frozen. I did make a change to to the power options in control panel when this all started a happen. Uncharged the options so that I was prompted for the action to take when using the power button. Prior to that is just said it was closing and did. Now it hangs there.

    Also, I have to wait 5 full minutes or moreto start up again because if I don't and retry it too soon a system window pops up that is split into 3 rows in different colors. Blue color says monitor is fine. Then there is a green and a red one. One of those will say to to check my pc connection as if something is unplugged.
    I have tried restoring and it did nothing.
    I have tried safe mode. Nothing.
    Before I left to come and get my pc I was trying to get as far as a hijack log but didn't get that done yet. Don't think it has anything to do with that anyhow
