Hello, I am having some computer problems that I think my be hardware related.

My PC will frequently reboot to a blue screen. I took off the side of my case and put a bigger fan up to the side, and that seems to help quite a bit, but it will still randomly crash sometimes.

Also, some Windows components are not working. When I try to open my Add/Remove programs window, nothing comes up, and sometimes, pictures appear fragmented.

Any help is appreciated, and thank you in advance.

Download a program called Speedfan. It will monitor the temps inside your system and when you have an idea of what they are then post them here. Speedfan also has a harddrive diagnostic tool. Run that and see if it brings up any areas for concern. Speedfan can be downloaded from here:

I had the same problem..but the problem was because my socket was damaged.. so I suggest checking your ram memory or use the BURNINTEST to test all of your components
