    OK so my computer is doing some freaky things...

    It keeps restarting on its own. I was in bed last night watching TV I heard a weird noise coming from my computer and I look over and its restarting on its own.( it has does this several times over the last few days... however today when I restarted it my computer had a windows warning come up that said my computer had just recovered from a serious error... although it made no mention of what this error was.) DOes anyone Know why it would do that? Also It keeps freezing on the HP welcome screen. Now you guys dont have to tell me HP's are crap... I already know that... (If I knew even a fraction of what I do now about computers I would have never bought this piece) I dont have any viriuses or spyware... is my computer just on its last leg? Or is it Possesed by some weird computer geeky spirit?

    It could be overheating. Try opening it up to see if any fans have failed and try to clean out the dust.

    What happens if you start your computer in safe mode and let it run for a few? What OS are you using?
