I received a new computer as a Christmas gift, my brother installed Windows XP home edition on the computer for me and copied all my old files to it. However, work took me out of town for a month and a half so I didn't get a chance to use for a more than a couple of hours. Now I'm back and I'm stuck with this bleeping computer that keeps crashing like a drunk at Mardi Gras.

To be specific the eb browsers are what seem to be crashing--I've downloaded everyone I can find, I don't think Internet Explorer has crashed, I use Firefox so I thought it was the problem, I went through their forums, turning off extensions and what not, but it still kept crashing. So I switched to Opera, still crashing, Seamonkey the same thing. I'm going to start bleeping in a minute, anyone know what's going on here?

Operating System: Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition Build 2600
Service Pack: Service Pack 3
Processor Name: Intel Core 2 Duo E7500
Motherboard Model: ASRock G31M-S.
Motherboard Chipset: Intel G31 (Bearlake) + ICH7
Drive Model: Seagate ST3250410AS

My brother said there was some issue with the software that came with this cdrom drive, but he fixed. I wonder if that is the problem?
Drive Model: HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GH22NS50

I also tried this program: WhoCrashed, but every crash listed has a different program as the cause, which made me think it was a memory problem. I found this memory test program: Memtest86, according to this program there's nothing wrong with the memory.

I haven't been able to find a real hardware diagnostic program--a free one, anyway.

I also found HWiNFO32 which will generate a huge report on the hardware if you need it.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Why not simply...get more particulars on what your brother did? And why?

Any information in Event Viewer that correlates to your crashes?
