Hey all, I was over at my brothers this weekend, and he told me that he was having some problems on his computer. Here's what's going on. Every now and then, the computer will shut itself down/put itself into standby mode, and not come out of sleep if it did go to standby. I don't think that this is a software problem, because it does this when it is booting everynow and then also. My first thought (plus his) was that the motherboard was going bad (a capacitor or something), but weren't really sure. It's an eMachines, so obvoiusly quality is not the case with this one. He just got it fixed by best buy this January under the warranty, but the warranty expired a few months ago so he doesn't know if Best Buy will stand by their work or not. Has anybody ever heard of this problem before or have any idea on what it could be? Thanks for any input.
