Default Computer freezes, but only when it has been turned off.

Hello.
My computer freezes when I have had it shut down.
I can put the computer to sleep and it will work just fine.
I have tried to reinstall windows several times.
It only happens when it has shut down, so I have no idea what it can be.

My computer is an "Acer Aspire M5300"

What do you mean it freezes when it was shut-down. It freezes while it's shutting down? This could be the reset of some software not closing properly.

No it's not when it is shutting down.
It's if i have had it shut down over the night, when I then boot it up, it freezes randomly.

So basically anytime it's on it freezes randomly?

I bet this has little to do with you shutting it down at night and a lot more to do with hardware. Unfortunatly hardware isn't my thing, so maybe someone who knows about hardware will be willing to help.

It could be overheating/a bad cpu/a bad RAM stick/a bad Hard Drive/something faulty in Windows....like I said hopefully someone else will be able to offer more assistance.

Does the computer freeze when you leave it on for extended periods?

Exactly when does it freeze? When you get to the desktop? A few minutes after booting? Hours?

It's random.
5 minutes or 4 hours.

Test the memory and hard drive.
