At the moment I have a PC which is prob about 5 years old now but has just started to display blue screen error messages and other errors appear when I first start the PC up!!! The monitor doesn't work anymore and also the CD drive doesn't write anymore... is it going to be more cost effective to buy all the bits and get a friend to replace the things that dont work or just buy a new PC???
the blue screens are probobly software problems, when your windows is f*cked up or something. you can try to reinstall the operating system,
offcourse is buying a new cd drive an monitor much cheaper then buying a new computer, but if you want to buy a new one you should also buy a new monitor (because it is broken).
if your pc is not realy up to date (slow etc) then it is a good idea to look in local stores and on internet for a new computer.
How about giving us some more details about your computer>?>?
Generally though, you should buy a new computer. The only thing that you should actually keep, is the monitor, keyboard mouse(any HDD, tec). It doesn't worth it to just change some parts.
You will be able to fix this computerPretty easily, if you just reinstall windows. This might solve the problem.
Thanks for the suggestions, I thought perhaps I might have had to buy a new Hard Drive or something to fix the blue screen error. It is generally a very slow PC now but does the trick, or did heh heh! I'm currently using my dads PC but he uses that for work so cant use it very often. I dont know what the spec for the PC is as it was second hand from a friend in the first place hehe.
I will start looking around for bits and bobs then to replace things that don't work and I will also try to find out what the PC spec is to see if I should buy a new PC instead.
The blue screen error, could that be caused by installing Sims 2 Pets as this game was sent to me by an online company who got it from Japan. I needed one that played in CD drives you see which was quite hard to find!!! Or is it likely to be something more that would cause the PC to crash?
Thanks again everyone
