My aunt got a PC from work. It had a formatted Hard Drive. She got someone to install XP on it for her. She got it back and it was working fine for a week or two.
Then all of a sudden it started locking up every time you logged on. It's very random as to when it does it. It could be when using the IE, in word, or even solatiare. No pattern to it.
Then it started shutting down on it's own. Just Power it up, wait a second and poof, it'll just power down. Or what appears to be shutting down, cause the Power is still on and the Power Supply fan is still running... but, blank screen and no indication of anything else to be running.
I was thinking, maybe, just a bad OS install. Try to install a new version and it locks up every time I try to install it.
Anyone have any idea where I can start... I'd hate to think it's a bad mother board, cause the PC was working fine before the format.
