This is the strangest problem I've EVER heard of. First my friend has a problem with her PC rebooting. At first it only happened when she browsed the internet, so I replaced the NIC as a test, didn't work. Replaced the hard drive because it kept generating file system errors, still not fixed.
Eventually she decided to buy a new PC so I hand picked the parts and built her a brand new one. Guess what, the new computer is doing the exact same thing. When I installed the software at my place everything was fine, and when I bring the PC back to my place after experiencing problems at her place, no problems. Tried a UPS to stabilize the AC power in the house, in the off chance that was the problem, still doesn't solve the problem. She also has a laptop that works fine.
Without going into pain-staking detail, I've only come up with one consistency, the house. The first and second PC worked fine at my place, not at hers, and that's it. I haven't tried EMF to rule that out. Ideas? Comments?
