I have replaced the motherboard in a HP AIO and it was the most complicated, pain in the ass system I have ever dealt with. Worst then any laptop I have fixed.
    just because if the drivers reinstall does not work doesn't necessary make it a hardware issue. NVidia is known to have the worst drivers out with problems with crashing, ever since Microsoft got harder on drivers after vista and up with tdr (which should be turned off because 90% of the time this is what cause gcard bosd and resets everytime). depending on the error he is getting and if his chip/gcard is not overheating its most likely tdr problem which can be turned off in the registry.

    I don't know about all that, ive used nvidia products for many years never had a single issue, I would go with them over ATI any day! My gtx 580 has been trucking along ever since I got it on release...

    I know, but we are dealing with someone who does not seem to be computer savvy and would probably not know how to do any of that. Im just trying to give him the easiest solution that he can do on his own. If the drivers don't work, I wouldn't expect him to go into the registry and change things without supervision, would you?

    I am not saying NVidia cards are bad or anything since hell I got gtx580 to but for gaming on some computers tdr can cause problems for some users

    true it is dangerous for a computer newbie to go into the registry and change some stuff in there but there are guides or reg file installers to change/add files to them to that can work. I am just saying that I had this problem in the past with a gtx 285 and have had others to and the only way to fix it was to turn off tdr.

    Probably, its best though for someone with minimum knowledge to go to a shop...or ask people they know if they happen to know anyone that is computer savvy, go messing around with stuff you don't know and you maybe getting more than a blue screen!
