    problem 1 - the pc frezzes at shut down

    problem 2 - pc sometimes doesnt start sucessfully

    problem 3 (new problem just started) - sometimes the usb ports, printer port, keyboard and mouse ports fail, and theres nothing to control the pc with.

    problem 4 - sometimes when you turn the pc on and go to login the pc automicly says windows is shuting down.
