Default Computer Problem, needs troubleshooting.

My neighbour called me and said her computer is acting up, her kids were in a game when the computer suddenly shutdown and now it takes forever to boot up although it does boot up. Can anyone tell me a few things this could be before I head over there and mess it up even more? thanks.

This could be numerous things from RAM, temps, GPU, HD etc.

Change the world. Of one person. Today.

If your equation requires either a complex combination of variables to get the desired result OR you can't seem to get the result regardless of the ain't your variables, it's your constant.
