Hello all, I have received a computer from a friend's parents in need of fixation. They have been having problems with it for a while, and have filed warranty repairs galore. They've had it sent in 8 times over the past 2 months, since I suppose the problems began. I don't know much of anything about the onset of the problems, if he added any new hardware or anything, since I received this through a third party and I've never had the chance to ask the guy anything. I can call the guy anytime, though. I do know that he added an extra 128MB of memory, because it says 64MB on the side with all the specs and he actually has 192. I'll ask him if it started after that. It's very possible the memory added was Generic, and that it conflicts with the old memory, the Compaq memory. He says he's been getting quite alot of blue screens, no matter what he's doing on it. Nothing really more. Anyway, I think it may be his PSU. Since he's added more RAM and who knows what else, it may not be enough. He has a 250W Compaq PSU, with 8A on the 12V rail. Heh and another tricky thing - It's definitely a hardware problem. The operating system (WinME) has been reinstalled countless times. Now there's nothing on the hard drive save Windows and all the other Compaq stuff. The only hardware conflict in Device Manager is not installed drivers for a PCI card - which is either his modem or NIC. Anyway, here's the specs: Compaq 7AP134 (7000 series) Athlon 750MHz, Slot A w/ Tai-Sol HSF (not overheating) Compaq proprietary system board w/ AMD 751 chipset 192MB PC100 SDRAM (original Compaq 64MB + another 128 added later) nVidia Riva TNT2 16MB AGP video 30GB (Compaq probably) HDD Creative AudioPCI SMC EZ Card 10/100 NIC Unknown modem (no drivers installed) LG CD-RW drive Compaq DVD drive My opinion of current system techs will fail if I fix this, which I'm definitely going to do. Because if I, the 15 year old, can fix this than why the heck can't they, the professionals?! Thanks in advance.
