  1. "The bluescreen errors vary from Kernal_Mode_Exception, Session 3
    Initialisation Error,
    Session 5 Initialistaion Error, C000021a Hard Error it will
    sometimes go through a chkdsk and report errors which are fixed.

    After these errors I have to do a 4 sec power off if I reset the hard drive
    is not detected during POST.

    However after maybe 5 reboots and 20minutes or so I can usually get it up -
    once its up and running I can reboot over and over and it will be fine for
    days - but if I leave it off overnight the next day the problems are back."

    After running the online hard drive diagnostics S.M.A.R.T errors were
    reported the hard drive went back under RMA and replacement worked fine.
