The original specs:
(A couple of old disc drives that my friend gave me were included)
The specs now:
Hard Drive (The old hard drive would not operate with the tower at one point, no matter what I did to it i.e. formatting, rewiring, etc. I chose to plug it into an external enclosure and it now works just fine as an external hard drive, oddly. All of the files were still stored in it as well.)
RAM (The supposed original culprit was replaced with this.)
(The case's front panel was damaged while moving it at one point, so I had to remove it. I chose to cover the exposed wires that had powered the blue light on the panel with electrical tape.)
Extra Disc Drive (I removed one of the disc drives that eventually ceased to function and replaced it with this.)
USB to Ethernet jack (I've had many internet-related issues as well, and this has solved them multiple times. I'm currently using it due to the ethernet jack on the mobo not functioning for some reason or another.)
Two years ago I purchased this computer, and I've damn near replaced everything in it twice. The original problems were inconsistent freezes, which I figured out could have been faulty memory. So I replaced it. Six months later with no problems (which is now,) I'm running into the same problem and more. I now get the same inconsistent freeze ups and BSOD's. The freezes can be just a complete freeze with glitched sounds blaring from my speakers/headphones, or I can get these bizarre graphical glitches (which I have a few pictures of taken from my camera if it means anything). I don't know what to do anymore, and I'm rushing myself to get all the important info in while I can still recall it. If you have any relevant questions, please just ask and I'll try my best to get it answered. Thank you in advance.
