Im basically trying to fix a friends computer which randomly crashes.
I first tried to install xp from stratch but the installer crashes about half way through. so i tried the ubuntu live cd which crashed half way through booting.
I always blame crashes on dodgy ram so i did a memtest and found it failed. so i swapped it with ram from another pc i have laying about here.
the thing is it still crashes just like before.
What shall i try next short of swapping out every component in the pc to find out what one is borked.
