    PC crashing after new motherboard and ram


    I had problems with my PC blue screening with memory errors. Acer sent a guy out (it is still under warrenty) who said it was down to loose clips on the ram slots so he replaced the motherboard and ram. Ever since then the pc has been randomly freezing several times a day. I have to turn the machine off and on again to get it to work. A clean install of the OS didn't make any difference.

    What could be causing it. The new hardware was exactly the same as the old

    I'd return it for a 2nd warranty repair go-around.
