Question about PC Desktops
There is a way of testing harddrives and RAM using the manufacturers diagnostic tools, you would have to go to the harddrive manufacturers website and download the utility then burn it to a CD.
You can also download a whole bunch of diagnostic tools and burn it to a CD using whats known as "The Ultimate Boot CD". There is plenty of help and instructions on the UBCD web site:
You will need a computer that has a CD burner installed and the ability to make a bootable CD, you will also have to change the setup of your friends computer so that it boots from the CD first and not the harddrive, by carrying out the diagnostic tests hopefully you can identify the faulty part easier and avoid buying something you don't need.
