I've had a strange, long running problem that has been driving me insane. My computer is brand new, and randomly crashes to the bios screens that show when I first push the power on button. I've just had the machine completely rebuilt, and the motherboard replaced by the people who sold it to me, and the problem is persisting, but wont happen for them in the shop.

Last time the problem eventually started showing disk errors and the occassional blue screen flashed up, and the computer became totally inoperable (at least until it got into the store). After reading some reasonably similar posts here, I managed to find the error log in the event viewer, that corresponded with the 2 most recent crashes...

you have a bad driver...

Without more info (make and model of PC), I cannot guess which one.

I would start with the system driver, then the video driver, then the sound driver, as these are the three most troublesome

Thank you! I've updated all of my drivers, so I hope that fixes it. Are you sure it will just be a driver issue? I've been noticing that things have been running a bit hot (54C) and whenever I do anything processor intensive the fans make a big racket - is this likely to be a problem as well?
