Pc spec

Asus A8n-SLI deluxe motherboard

AMD 64 Athlon 3500+ socket 939 CPU

1GB ram

500w PSU

500GB seagate HDD

1GB ATI HD 5450 graphics card

running windows 8

when i start the computer all is well i can enter bios and stay there for ever if needed. the problem awakens when i reach the sign in screen on windows 8. if i am lucky i can enter my password and sign in but a few minutes later the computer will black out and go to sleep and upon clicking the mouse it will wake... but it will either freeze... go back into sleep mode or restart... this mainly happens before i even get to sign in to windows 8. any help would be greatly appreciated...

Hello,

Try this 1

1) When you switch ON your computer, start tapping the "F8" key to get "Startup

Settings" options ( if boot menu appears, press "Esc" key and keep tapping the

F8 key)

2) When "Startup Settings" appears, press the "F10" key.

3) When the "Launch recovery environment" appears, press the number key "1".

4) When the "Choose an option" window appears, select the option

"Troubleshoot".

6) When the "Troubleshoot" window appears, select the option "Refresh your

PC".

Make sure you read "Here's what will happen" and then proceed

with the on screen instructions if you agree with it.

Good Luck
