Hi all, i was having issues with my custom PC possibly a virus issue. i believe now that maybe something may have got fried because after re installing the os several times it still runs at a crawl even when re installing windows from a cd. i tested the PSU so that is not the issue and am now thinking it may be the hard drive or motherboard. I am currently at college so do not have all my equipment to properly test the hardware so was wondering if you guys had any ideas. thanks in advance.

I had a similar problem, turned out the video card was at fault. Really though, faulty anything could be the problem without running diagnostics. What hardware are you running, what windows version?

i attempted to bench it as instructed in the guide, now the machine will start and then abruptly cut off after 4 or 5 seconds
