SOFTWARE problem, yeah. Hardware problem, though, get the tech to come out and figure it out. Ofcourse, proving that it IS a hardware problem is somewhat more difficult.
Getting a tech to come out and look at your computer requires that you purchase that $300-$00 extended warranty. I would rather keep that money for a graphics card upgrade.
Like I said, buy quality components, and you will be fine. I assembled my first computer in Fall 2003 - it is still running fine, and I believe with the last graphics card upgrade a month ago (X800 XT AIW ;)), it will serve me for another two years, easy.
After that I will keep most of my components and just update what is necessary. That is another advantage of building your own rig - you can keep most of the components that dont change much, and use them for the next system. Things like the case, case fans, DVD players and burners, floppy drives, HDDs (I have S-ATA drives), etc.
If I were to upgrade today, all I would need is new CPU, motherboard, and PCI-E graphics card - I can carry over ALL my other components. Try doing that with a Dell You cannot make anything fool-proof. The fools are too inventive
