|This has a been a long drawn out process for me. |
When I first received this system from my friend (asked me to fix it, so that he can give to his daughter for school work). What initially happened was that the system would reboot (sometimes bluescreen) whenever it detected an internet connection.
I checked for viruses, checked updated drivers, etc...It happened on both the nic and wifi cards.
To make a long story short, I reformatted the hd, same thing...then I replaced the hd and ram memory stick...same thing.
Yesterday, I got a new heat sink and checked to see if that might be what's causing it to crap out. It didn't blue screen this time, but, I still got the "Oh snap!" message from Chrome after about 2 1/2 episodes of a Flash vid.
I'm seriously suspecting that whoever had my bud's computer (he lent it out) might've tried to overclock it and now is causing the processor to crap out.
Does anyone have any ideas? I'm at my wit's end and would really appreciate the help. Thank you!
Note: I saved a bunch of the BSOD messages. Let me know if you need it.
