    you should be able to do a fresh install but that wont promise you success, why did he give it to you anyway, because it didnt work? Did you ask him why it didnt work at all.

    probably has bad drivers or some kind of hardware error. Also could be a corrupted disk.
    First thing to do is test your ram with memtest 86+
    I would also attempt to format and reinstall windows from scratch.

    In the future title your threads more descriptively. We have far too many "I need help" threads.
