Sorry i took a while to respond to this but. lets see
I don't think it was his PSU, because he wasn't using the original psu from emachine. it was a After market 500watt off newegg.
His case is big. and can hold, 5-6 slots at the bottom.
We like Amd
All ps connector's have been upgraded.
- I don't think it was his HDD going bad. Because at first, it messed up. we played around with some things. and it worked for about 3 mins. Then bad again.
I tested the Graphic, ram, psu and the hdd. So he ordered a new Mobo and CPU
- i went over the hold inside of the computer and couldn't smell or see anything that looked wrong. it was a freak thing lol.
so my guess is, either the Mobo or CPU went bad. but he got a new one, should be here in a few days. Well see how it works. then i can grab a few old parts and test his old stuff to see whats wrong.
