I bought a second hand PC and its been acting up ever since i first used it. It would randomly just reboot itself after doing nothing in particular. Once i was just surfing the web, then i was updating windows, another time I was installing a program, etc etc
It happens without fail everytime except you don't know when it comes, sometimes its 5 mins in, sometimes its 30mins.
There is an error report (windows has recovered from a serious error.....)
There seems to be a problem with 2 files, one of them is something to do with the minidump and I dont remember what the other file was.
I reinstalled windows, and it still crashes
It has a maxtor drive so I had a maxtor boot disk to find/fix bad sectors (it fixed one) - it still crashes
I've checked it properly (twice run over of the drive) and maxtor certified it was clear of faults - it still crashes
I'm sure its not the HD problem. I'm pretty sure something is going wrong elsewhere in the system. I'd be very grateful if any of you can help me!! I do need this PC pretty badly!
Thanks so much
