Currently having problems with a homebuilt computer. It has been running excellent for 5 months, but all of a sudden it seems to be having a major meltdown. It started off crashing on a regular basis and not starting up. When I go into the BIOS now it freezes quite quickly, if the BIOS starts up at all. because it freezes in the BIOS I am assuming this rules out such things as hard drives etc? (also because if i let the computer run past the BIOS Win XP loads fine) Also when I am in the the BIOS after about 10 seconds the typing gets all mixed up. ie. floppy may change to fl&pyp etc etc It all seems to me to be motherboard / BIOS problems....can mobo's pack in after working well fot 5 months?? is there any other possibilites? I am assuming that if it were the processor the whole thing was shut up shop?
