ALL and I do mean all those errors were be spewed by a machine last year. It was not a software issue at all. What was it? The heatsink fan had failed. The poor owner was chasing software angles such as drivers, bios settings and reinstalling the OS and luckily he brought it to us and after listening to the story we knew it was not a software issue at all.

May you be so lucky.
