"Hello, my mom just called me this morning to take a look at her PC which is not working.
When the power button is pressed, lights come on and the fans start but most of the times nothing else happens.
Once or twice, I hear the usual beep and boots, displaying the security screen. When I selected to start windows normally, it started, loaded and then I got a blue screen, the one that says that changes were made and that the computer stopped working to prevent damage.. This is a fairly old computer and nothing was changed. Taking a look inside I saw the chipset fan wasnt working. Could this be the problem?
What can I do to solve it?
Motherboard model is MSI MS-7125, the chipset fan has an AMD logo on. I'm running windows 7.
Let me know if more info is needed.
Thanks for the help! "
I took to a repair shop and they ran a hardware test and said that was not the problem, that it was a SOFTWARE problem. They wanna charge $85+tx to fix this and said the data would be intact. Unfortunately I do not have money to spare at the time so I was wondering if you guys could give me a hand with this.
Thank you SO much! <3
