Something on my main computer has gone haywire. I have not installed any new hardware of software, but all of a sudden this morning my machine started to blue screen. After the first BSOD I rebooted and my audio didn’t work (no audio device installed).
I shut down the computer, then powered back up – and had audio.
20 minutes later my machine BSOD’d again. Restarted – no audio. WTF?
Powered down, restarted and had audio. About an hour later the machine blue screened again.
This time I booted into Windows XP (was in Vista before).
Started up, with Audio. About ten minutes later, it BSOD’s under XP. Very odd.
So I have a hardware problem, I think. The audio is on the motherboard, so I think I need a new motherboard. This one isn’t even 6 months old 🙁
And don’t tell me to get a Mac – my Mac has been dead for about 5 months, and even a Mac Guru hasn’t been able to heal it.
So as soon as my back allows, I am going to get a new motherboard… too bad the Intel Quad-core CPU’s are still over $1000!
