  1. When your PC is booting up, Press F8 a few times, choose "Don't automatically restart on system failure". Induce the failure again, this time you presumably will be confronted with a blue screen, record the data on the screen and google for the error message number, will look something like this "0x00000009c" or something.
    Will most likely be a problem with Video drivers.

    Good Luck. Post the Error message here maybe we can help.
  2. nvm found out avast was causing the problem, disabled it and everything worked like a dream.
