ey guys, what's up? I'm new here to this forum so I would just like to say HI! just decided I would get some input on what I'm planning to do here. any input i will greatly appreciate, thanks for taking the time out to help me.
**I have a sony Vaio rs-530g - 3.2ghz, 512 mb ram, 120gb WD HD ati raedon 9200 128 mb graphics card.**
I have been having problems with random restarts, and blue screens and stuff. I have taken my computer to a repair shop and he tested my hardware and everything came back ok, and he did all the stuff with the software, and drivers and everything. But their is still a problem.. So he said it's either the power source or the mother board, and my power source is proprietary, so he said it would end up being cheaper for me to buy a motherboard, and power supply and change out the case. I have been wanting to build a computer for a while now anyways so I'm going to do it, despite the price. I'm going to use a new foxconn mother board, 965 chipset... and a new foxconn case with power supply.. I am going to install my processor, cd/dvd drives, my graphics card, and my ram into the new onn from my vaio, and install a brand new copy of windows with sp2... do you guys think this will work? Also what if i do all this and the problem is still there?? (although I dont see how because the stuff im taking out checked out perfectly fine, memtest36 also says my ram is ok) I'm just basically looking for a helping hand here, because i'm not that good with computers and would just like to know what I would do after all this if the problem was still there.... and if all this stuff is compatable and will work with a foxconn 865 series motherboard, thanks in advance
