HP a1357c keeps crashing after Windows XP3 update
Posted on 2011-09-24
My HP a1357c is crashing again.
Several months ago, noticed that the computer started crashing. I tried isolating different programs, but finally decided to start from scratch. I bought new hard drive, restored from the restore partition, and installed software one at a time, testing it for days. After days of testing with no crashes, the Windows SP 3 installed itself. I didn't see any crashes, so I moved it out of my lab (office) back to the family room. Now it's crashing again. After days of working on it, I'm at my wit's end here.
I thought the issue might be video drivers, so I got the latest drivers for the video and BIOS. (It was suggested at the HP site that I update the BIOS if I was going to update the video driver).
Anybody else come across anything like this?
