Some of you may (or may not) remember that my desktop almost died about 2 months ago. Well I replaced the motherboard and it (mostly) recovered.
Well I return to my desktop today and it's crashed in Windows XP. So I reboot and when it gets to the windows logo screen, it automatically restarts itself. So I try safe mode, but the same thing happens.
I think it has passed away but has lived a good 5 years.
Will try again tomorrow and see if maybe it was overheating, and needed to cool off (unlikely) and I'll open up the case to see if the motherboard has blown some components (that's what happened last time).
I don't think I can revitalise it this time, and may be selling off any salvageable components (like GFX card, DVDRWs etc.) on the for sale forum in the upcoming week. So if you're after that kind of thing then keep your eyes peeled!
If anyone does have any great ideas that I could try, before abandoning hope, then I would be most grateful to be on the receiving end of such suggestions!
