using normal av programs.
I have been having random BSODs and with out rhyme or reason (to me) and usually after the auto restart it seems ok.
It usually happens at start up or shortly after(5 min. to 1 hr.).
Originally I took it to CompUSA (the only game in town) for a diagnostic and they told me that there was no OS on the hard drive and that my hard drive was bad, and so I bought a new one and they put it in.
Shortly after (one week) it started the same BSODs, then finally a black screen "cannot boot insert disk", or something like that.
I took it back and they told me that there was no OS on the drive , so they re installed the OS (Vista 32 Home Premium) .
Again it worked fine for a while but now it's up to it's same tricks. I don't want to take it back to them again because obviously they don't know
what they are doing but to sell products that are not needed.
So.....I need your help with this , please.
I heard about ancient viruses or malware like " Brain" that can infect the boot sector and cause random BSODs stops and the like.
How do I know for sure and how do I remove or fix it?
Or is that really my problem?
Here are my systems information >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Speccy system information .
Thanks , Ron
