I am running Windows 7 on a desktop. A couple of weeks ago I was having issues with it, which turned out to be hardware, I took it to be looked at and found there was a malfunctioning PSU, which I then replaced.
Since then I noticed I was having trouble connecting to the internet. I was using a LAN cable to start with, but have just moved house and am now wireless. I am still able to connect, but it is somewhat sporadic and often slow. (I also have a laptop, which connects without any problems, and the internet connection seems reasonably fast). Yesterday whilst trying to open a browser I got a BSOD, I wasn't able to read the error message in time as it then restarted. I decided to just go with a fresh install of Windows 7 as there had been an error with upgrading to 10 anyway. But I hadn't thought about dump files and so I don't know if that will have erased them.
So, I am running Windows 7 home premium, it is a fresh install from disc, OEM version (for Dell).
The hardware is about 5 years old and was a custom build. Newer hardware: 1TB hard drive which is 1 year old. 256GB SSD (with the Windows OS installation on) which is 1 year old. PSU, which is 3 weeks old.
16GB installed RAM
CPU: AMD FX 8350 8 core processor
PSU: Corsair CX 430
Motherboard: ASUSTeK M5A78L-M/USB3
Graphics card: VTX X edition Radeon HD 7850
I have no real idea how to find the fault now, or even where it is likely to be, so thanks in advance for any help,
