Hello,My computer (Gateway SX2800-01) crashes often after 10-15 minutes of startup. The crash is black screen, no more sound, fan still running and (HD runnning I think). CPU stopped its work since there is no more sound from my CPU (C2Q Q8200).The crash started happening when my computer was turned off for 5+ days. Before that, my computer works fine every day for 3+hours per day for 1-2 years. No new hardware installed from the day I received the computer.If I keep my computer on for 3+hours/day, crash don't really happen.(After 2-5 crashes, the problem seems to disappear if the computer stay ON, but after I leave the computer OFF for 5+ days, then open it again; crash happen again and again)Sometime it crashes at boot, sometimes after 5-15 minutes...I'm worried about not being able to get in the computer anymore if the situation gets worse... can't keep the computer ON when I'm gone for 5+ days each week.Why does crash occurs after my computer is OFF for long periods of time?
