Hey.

I have been having this problem for a week now. My computer randomly "hangs". This is: the screen suddenly goes black (if I was listening to music, playing a game or something, the background sound also stops) and shows a small, purpleish window saying "Modo de Ahorro de Energía" (it's in spanish, so roughly translated it means something along the lines of "Energy Saving Mode").

This happens randomly. Could either occur when I start my computer, in the middle of a game, or 20 hours later after turning it on. Nothing I do can help this. My keyboard does not respond, and neither does the "Reset" button. My only option is to unplug and plug it back in.

I use Windows XP. I've scanned my computer multiple times with multiple, different programs for viruses and malware, and nothing popped up. I believe it might be a piece of hardware that's near death by now.

What do I do?!

you could reset to factory defaults. If your translation is correct Energy saving mode is your setting changed for system to hibernate so resetting to f/defauly will make a change

You sure? I'm almost certain it is RAM memory starting to fail.

However, I'll try your option but I don't know how to do that. Any help on that please? =D
