My brother-in-law's PC is having problems that manifest awhile after
boot. Could be hardware, or it could be Windows. *shrug* Being the
family computer guy, I said I would try to take a look. Not being a PC
tech "in real life", my experience troubleshooting that kind of thing is
a little limited. Any suggestions I could try to test the hardware
(RAM, HD) before blindly reinstalling Windows (and crossing my fingers)?
I've got a Knoppix CD, if it has the tools I'd need. Or a
Windows-based solution would be OK too.
