Im running an Acer Power1000 small form factor, well 9 of them. within a week 4 motherboards fried, just 1 month out of warranty. I happened to find a company which deals with acer parts and replaced the mboards for 150 ea. vs 500 which is what acer wanted...
I digress. 3 are running fine now. the fourth was running fine then all the sudden stopped. it took me a day to get the hdd to spin. then it would freeze during boot up. I have cleared the cmos, reconfigured the data in setup. Now i can finally get into windows. i can only complete maybe 3 tasks then it freezes again. Upon restart.. freezes. I have been able to run a memtest which came back fine, check disk, unplugged drives, swapped PSUs.. nothing has worked thus far.
And i am certain it is not virus related.
Any ideas what to try next? My final thoughts are that the mboard could be faulty or bad RAM bays? wouldnt that return errors on a memtest tho?
