Recently my PC started crashing alot. I thought it was overheating so I started monitoring the cpu temp to make sure and even while playing a game it would only have a rise in temp of a few degrees.
At idle it would be around 47 degrees Celsius and while playing a game it would get to around 54 degrees. Not sure if thats high or not.
Then it had a big series of crashes and I had to do some kind of windows recovery thing and now I get all these error popups saying bad image for such and such .exe.
been like that for a week without crashing and I could play games and stuff no crashes. then it crashes today.
(just once so far) It crashed and crashed again shortly after windows booted up. then again on the screen where it offers to boot in safe mode. Now I am booting into safe mode.
my question is on my next action. is it hardware or software or maybe both. and what should I do? I have a copy of win 8 pro ready to go but its just a download code not a disc or anything so I could wipe it all and start fresh with win8 if that would fix my problem.
