So the owners computer has been having issues locking up and crashing and generally running slow. The major issue is his PC will restart for an update or something and wont finish restarting, the monitors will be black and unresponsive and his numlock key on his keyboard will be stuck on (mouse and keyboard unresponsive), you get the standard failed to install updates and reboots. The pc had thrown a couple hard drive errors over the past few months so I replaced the hard drive, reinstalled windows etc. Now with the new hard drive windows cant get through windows updates without locking up. I changed the power settings so it wont go to the black screen and it basically just locks up showing windows updates. I manually installed some of the updates succesfully (the ones that speed up windows updates) so of the 220 initial updates theres 190 left or so, security updates etc, and it cant make it through them. Do I just manually update them to see if they will go? I tried doing them in blocks of like 60 and they still locked it up. When I run the system check its showing a BIO HD8 error for hard drive, even on the brand new hard drive. hes got an HP pro 3130 MT, running windows 7 looking around theres a couple really pissed off people saying its a MOBO error that HP has been ignoring and to replace the mobo and thats whats throwing the BIO HD8 errors, not the actual drives. I've never done a mobo, im not really looking forward to tearing this thing all the way down and swapping a mobo to have the issue come back. Is it time to just get a new pc? Am i missing something here?
