    Great tip, thanks, found a short guide here: https://www.washington.edu/doit/tech-tips-troubleshooting-windows-linux-live
    Each power on it either

      Boots, shows the Windows log, freeze/lights out on keyboard after 2-3 secs
      Boots, shows the Windows log0 and “Preparing Automatic Repair”, freeze/lights out on keyboard after 2-3 secs
      Boots, shows black, then reboots

    Also, when navigating the UEFI menu, it can freeze randomly.
    So, yep, how do we know whether it’s the CPU chip, or something else on the mobo (the memory is fine I think). Once the machine is booted, it is fine for hours on end (mostly)!
