This is for my sister's computer which I built about 3 years ago. She lives across the country so I don't have direct access to the system but ask me anything you need to know. When she gets home from work today I'll run SystemInfo
on her rig and update my profile with that info. Off the top of my head she's running Windows 7 Pro x64 Retail, no re-installs.
I probably should have been more proactive in fixing this we're 3 years into the build and it restarts with random BSODs all the time. She can hardly use it. In the beginning it was RAM related as confirmed by Memtest86+ and other tools, so we RMA'd that but the problems have continued. We didn't reinstall the OS after that so there may be file system corruption; however I SFC'd and used other tools to repair things so I think we're OK there.
The only other unusual thing I should mention is that she's using a wireless card on her desktop and its connection drops very frequently. I thought the driver
might be problematic but it's too much hassle - between the BSODs and the Wi-Fi drops - to remote in to troubleshoot this. Thanks very much for your help, experts. I'm out of my league
