|Hi there, my pc is driving me insane!|
Over the past few weeks my pc has been up to all sorts, mostly with booting up. The most regular problems are...
*PC hangs on bootup on the motherboard screen
*Locks up after being on a few minutes (screen stays on but no mouse etc normally in the first 1-5 mins of booting up)
*crashes if left not doing anything
*BSOD (different message nearly every time) after being on a few minutes
*restarts itself when trying to boot up
Once I can get it to stay on it seems ok for the rest of the day
I don't know loads about PC's (so can't tell you much about what the specs are sorry) but I've tried...
*replacing an old loose sata lead
*replacing power lead
*Taking out one mem chip at a time
I really need this pc for my work and am trying to keep it on long enough to back my work up. I also tried hard drive diagnostics but pc locked up before it had a chance to complete.
I do use some heavy software (adobe fireworks, photoshop, dreamweaver)
I've had suggestions as to what it could be but all a bit expensive to test~ spesh if it's not that..
Thanks for any help!
