Default Computer crashes

Hi,

A few weeks ago, my computer crashed randomly. After I turned it back on, it keeped crashing. I thougt it may be a virus, so I did a complete PC recovery and reinstalled Windows. The recovery went well, but as soon as I started it, it continued the random crashes. I shut it down, turned the main switch off, and pulled out the plug. After a week or so, I plugged it back in, and everthing seemed to be solved. No more crashes. But now, two weeks later, it has te same problem and is crashing again all the time. Could it be a hardware problem?

Thanks in advance, Ward.


PC Specifications:

Medion
Windows 7 32bit
It's about two years old.

Do you get a blue screen? If so, what does it say?

Most of the time, when you get a blue screen, it means an issue with the RAM.

From what you told us, "...After a week or so, I plugged it back in..." I think it could be a power supply issue. Possibly bad ac power cable, or bad psu.

"it gives me some weird colors and noices, and then automaticly reboots." also sounds like a bad power supply.
