Hi,

Ok well the computer im on, its quite good and fast and its like all cleaned off.. its like brand new. I've been having problems like going online and playing my games online.

Sometimes when im online browsing I get an error like:

Internet Explorer has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience.

In my online games sometimes it just quits and restarts on its own !!

I thought it was a motherboard problem, it cuda been fried or something but some other ppl told me it wasnt. This computer just had a reinstall of its OS so i dunno.

Could neone help me?

Its really weird cuz when I was tryen to get on this site on it it would just close instantly when I typed in techsupportforums and hit enter

Well I asked a person I knew who is like a elite pro, hes a computer enginer and he took it away and looked at it and he said it was the motherboard.

He fiddled with and said he fixed it but it didnt do nothin..

I've asked everywhere if they think the motherboard is the problem and they keep saying no.

Im no computer expert but could it possibly be the motherboard?

If your computer engener friend couldn't find anything wrong with it, chances are the hardware is fine.
But just in case....

Grab Memtest 86+ from here and save it to the windows desktop so you can find it later.
Insert a blank, formated, 1.44MB Floppy Disk into drive A:
Unzip the Memtest package to the windows desktop.
It will make a new folder called "floppy". Open it.
Run install.bat to make a special bootable Floppy Disk that will check your system's RAM.
Read the Readme File.
You can thank me later.
:grin:

I would wonder if its getting to hot because of a bad fan, improper cooling, or something like that. I would also download the latest video drivers since problems usually occur during gaming.

Some video card Mfgs. make tools available that allow you to monitor the GPU core's temp. Of course, this only works if the GPU core has a temp sensor on it. Check the website of your video card's Mfg.

Alternitively, you can use Everest Home Edition (http://www.lavalys.com) to take a snapshot of your video card's sesnors (if it has sensors). Everest doesn't allow for real-time monitoring, you have to click referesh to get a new update of the card's temp, so you're better off with the Mfg's tool if they offer one.

If it's an ATI-based card, ATI Tool (from http://www.techpowerup.com/atitool) can be used for temperature monitoring and fan speed control (on supported cards) but it's a very advanced tool inteneded for overclockers. Be carefull if you decide to use it!
