I have an HP Laptop computer. A couple of weeks ago, the laptop crashed. I had to do a complete recovery to be able to restart the computer. I kept having the same problem, so I took the laptop back to where I bought it from. They sent it off to their technicians where they said the mother board was going bad. So I took it to a friend, who is very knowledgable with computers, and he reloaded a different build of Windows XP Home. He said the computer is now running fine. My question is, will a bad version of Windows make it look like the mother board was going bad?
