Alright thanks. Well, I would greatly appreciate it if you guys pointed me towards some links for all the tests i should run, and all the ISO files i need to download.
EDIT: this is what i have so far
to test HDD: http://support.wdc.com/product/downl...sid=30&lang=en
and to test the RAM : http://www.memtest86.com/download.html
is this a good start to test?
