1. ". I came home from town and the computer was froze. "
Are you telling me that you run this laptop 24x7? Most consumer laptops do not survive long as "servers." It may have fried.
2. At 3 years, you have cleaned it with the usual instructions (link follows) 3 time?

3. My bet is about maintenance. Your post seems to not mention such.
4. I may have a wrong number but the sr2264w at hp.com com didn't find this model. Link please?
I have a 3 year old compaq computer. It originally had vista on it. We moved it back to xp a while back. Well We got a bad virus and put vista back on the computer. since then there has been nothing but issues. After the vista was put back on I have constant Boot manager image errors. I have since put windows 7 on it. It ran great for a few weeks. I came home from town and the computer was froze. when i rebooted the computer it said boot manager image error. If i shut the computer down for about 10 minutes it will boot up and then run fine for about 20 minutes and freeze again. Does anyone have any ideas beside replacing the mother board and rebuilding this computer.
