I don't think I need to explain any specs or anything other than my situation. I just really need to know which hardware component is causing my problem, because I really could justify it being a couple.
When I try to startup my computer, it powers up fine but the screen is black and nothing happens, just idles after the first few seconds.
After trying countless times, my windows will actually start up fine, although (very small percentage of the time) it will freeze as it's going through the Toshiba startup screen.
As it gets past that, windows will start up 100% fine, I have no viruses or malware or anything like that so it's runs absolutely beautiful when it actually gets there. But somewhere after 1 hour - 6 hours usually after windows is running it will just freeze. The screen will freeze and nothing will happen. After a forced shutdown and a quick try to restart the computer, it will go back to me having to try 30+ times to restart the computer.
My computer screen is fine, I don't have reason to believe it's my RAM.
I am thinking;
1) It could be the motherboard, overused and not working properly, maybe not giving the computer enough juice causing the bad startups and freeze while running.
2) It could be the processor that is just not running properly
3) I REALLY think it is the Hard Drive, just really isn't acting like it is anything else. Everything sounds/looks/runs the same in the past, but I am wondering if the Hard Drive is the cause of all the problems.
I need to ask this question so that I can replace the part and move on and not have to spend $800 on a brand new acer that looks incredible at newegg lol
So please let me know what component you think it is, why, and how sure you are.
Thanks for all the help in advance!
