I have a newly bought ASUS Windows 7 computer that gave me an error like this when I first turned it on:
The computer restarted unexpectedly or encountered an unknown error...
If I click ok to restart, it pops up the next time. I think I turned off the computer the first time because I didn't have the monitor connected right. I connected it and turned it on and got the error. The computer came with a recovery DVD. Should I try to use that or should I take it back? Thank you
