i predict you will not find a solution to your problem. it's pretty obvious why you were given this computer; the guy that gave it to you already knew about these problems. i am certain you will find the root of your problem is a serious hardware failure, possibly from the motherboard.

I have no question it must be the mobo.

Either that or the RAM or the processor. But my moneys on the mobo.
