I've had an HP Pavilion desktop PC that I bought new in 2008. Windows Vista OS. Recently it crashed and I ended up re-cloning it with the recovery disks I had. Even after all the updates and a week of running clean, it's crashing again. No matter what I'm doing, it just freezes up, the screen goes blank for a few minutes, and then it restarts entirely, only it doesn't load the login screen. Instead it stays blank for a few minutes, then the whole displays this:
Shortly after, it'll restart AGAIN with a weird twist. Anyway, after safe mode, system restore, windows repair, yadayadayada, it finally restarted with this as the first screen:
Yeah, that's not just some streaky crap my camera picked up. That's what I saw clear as day with my own eyes.
Any ideas on what's wrong or how I can fix it? I mean, smart phones can do a lot (posting from an Android :P ) but I'm sick of not having a computer.
