Thanks. Actually, I should have said that the version of Windows, Ultimate, came without a disk or key. I don't think Windows will install Home Premium over Ultimate, though I'm not sure.

Ordinarily I would suspect the PSU as well, but if Chrome is a factor that points to the RAM. Try pulling one stick at a time. Also, the BIOS flash is a good thing to do on GPs.

I like Win10, but not its intrusiveness. If I could control the updates and stop the spying, I would be happy with it. But as it is, I've been on Linux for almost two years now, and it's excellent....

Put a blank DVD disk in and burn some data to it and see if it's readable. Even burn a small boot disk, such as puppy linux.

Then pull the hard drive and try booting from the DVD.

My guess is that the account was POP3 and was somehow converted to IMAP, perhaps by BT, which is a live sync situation. If so you should be able to spec in Outlook which folders to download.

I don't see why you couldn't use the built-in Windows Transfer utility (migwiz) at menu/all programs/accesories/system tools. Save to a file rather than direct transfer.
