Default Re: Frequent Crashes

Download Speed Fan to a usb flash drive and take it over, incase it crashed before you can download it on his pc. Install it and check the temps for the hard drives, cpu and motherboard. If they are high then the pc might be over heating. Once the pc is running, open up the case and make sure every fan is spinning.

One more thing I could think of was that you could download Knoppix. Its live cd with linux on it, that you pop in your drive, and you boot off of that. You can boot off of knoppix and run a video file or anything else and see if the pc crashes. Do this if its not a fan or over heating issue.
