Can someone point me in the right direction as to what is wrong with my pc. Its a Tiny pc so yes its a pile of sh!t. every 5 month or so I have to erase the hard drive just so it runs propperly because of all the trouble I have with it. It constantly freezes mouse just stops and evrything stops, it crashes loads, when I go to shut it down it always asks me to restart it when I obviously dont need to, few other things but cant remember them all at the mo. None of my mates ever have any trouble with there computers its always my heap. I have tried to sell it on but no ones interested please help me as to what I need to get it fixed.

What you need is a GOOD clean install, using good drivers and pairing hardware and software up regarding compatability.

Just get all the drivers you need for your hardware, the correct good drivers, reinstall the OS from scratch on a newly formatted drive.

yeah format the hard drive, reinstall the operating system, download all the latest patches from microsoft, check tiny's support website to see if there is everything wrong with that model, dont download shit, make sure its got air to breath, it could be the system getting too hot and dying, or maybe the hard drive is fuckered?

im not 100% certain but it cud be one of these.

your RAM might be broken

your Motherboard my hav a problem that is stopping your mouse werk

or might just be your IDE cable that connect the Harddrive to the motherboard

and like willay sed your system might be over heating, so it will crash to stop it doing any damage.

but like i sed im not a 100% certain, hope this helps ya

lol it couldnt have come with a virus on it - i find that hard to believe. all pcs come to an end, changing the OS will only make it worse. most tiny pcs that come with ME, were built for ME, which in other words means your fucked. ME was yet another microsoft failure - save up and get a new one! or just get onto dabs.com get some new memory,motherboard, processor and HD - cant go wrong m8
