............ Ok then carne what do you suggest he does to fix it immediatetly ?
When I look at his issue I see something far more differently then what your explaining to me and him.
Installing linux is not a option eh ? not in my book carne.
I want him to atleast try that soon.
If it does not install from the dvd/cd or usb it might be a cpu problem.
Multiple attempts from different os and still a no go should point right back at the cpu.
He verified and he tested the ram, hdd, so hes running out of options to look into to find the source of the problem.
The only thing left to verify if his brothers optical drive can read the dvd/cds its given.
