Okay, this is getting annoying.
I've had a Vista Business system for about 8 months now. This is the same system that I've bitched about in the employment thread months ago. Long story short: my XP system shat the bed, so I payed around $400 to have it rebuilt. Unfortunately, I had my coworkers build the thing before I knew the depths of their incompetence (I naively thought that they'd do better work building a new system instead of trying to troubleshoot and repair a used system). So, the thing has never worked right from day 1. I've had BSODs from the beginning. I bought an additional fan, as I thought the problem was it overheating, but that wasn't the case as the BSODs continued.
Now, instead of BSODs, I'm getting frequent freezes. I only have 30 minutes or so of useful time before it freezes completely. I don't think it's a virus, as I scan my system fairly regularity. I also don't think it's a power supply problem. I'm thinking it's either a hardware problem or that one of the BSODs fucked Vista up severely.
Is there anything I can do/check before going for a complete reinstall of the OS? Is there a way to check hardware issues without cracking the machine open?
