Probably the RAM on it. However, try uninstalling the drivers and install the most recent version. There is a chance that perhaps they became corrupted. m 0 l dcnarad August 5, 2011 8:57:09 PM Thanks a bunch JaguarSKX. I guess it must be the RAM. Since the HDD is wiped clean (since I originally thought it was an OS issue) and now boots to terminal using live CD. Anything other than Damn small Linux won't even boot. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Publish Related resources Busted Graphics Card? Forum Is my graphics card busted?
