I am not sure how many other answers you may get with complex or general information but if this is a relatively recent re-install you might consider doing the install again.

I've been too many computers over the years and when I install Windows and there is a problem early on I scrap it and start over. Sometimes, with earlier versions of Windows, I have had to install two or three times before it installs well.

I hope you get a better answer with acceptable results. If not the simplest is generally the best.

However, if the -same- problem persists then you should look at the hardware as well.

Good luck
