My girlfriends uncle keeps bugging me about his computer problems. His computer is old donít remember the specifics but do remember he is running XP (even thought I think that information doesnít matter). The problem is that when he uninstalls his mouse or keyboard the computer shuts off. Sometimes the computer wonít turn on unless the mouse and keyboard are not installed. I was thinking either it had to do with the motherboard or the power supply failing but not sure which. As I stated before this computer is well over six years old. Anyone have an idea as to what might be the cause and do you think itís more advisable to upgrade the pc. All his info is saved on a external hd so there is no problem there.
Thank You in Advance
Just what I was thinking... make sure he's got the disks for M$ Office or whatever his other favoured software packages are too.
He'll probably find a marked improvement in performance after 6 years - a full clearance of spyware, viruses and other rubbish in the HDD reformat at the same time
taking the case off and giving a major clean with the air-spray would be a good move too.
So he went ahead and bought a new pc. I couldn't make it round to his house due to a busy schedule. He left me a voice mail asking me for MS Office and other software he had. Funny, but you guys guessed it ahead of time.
