If he says it was unstable then you have hardware failure.. Either the interrogated graphics card of the MB has failed or the root drive that holds the OS is loosing a sector or platter or some such thing.

If he was just tinkering or rootng around(Grrr).. You will need to f8 into safe mode and uninstall the graphics/chip driver then reboot normal mode. Make sure the OS has chosen basic vga as its base graphic driver.. Reboot again.

Now, install the second one down here.

Intel® HD Graphics Driver for Windows* 7/8-64-bit

https://downloadcenter.intel.com/pro...ore-Processors


That should take care of it if it is a driver error.

Morning Philo, thanks for the response. The fella doing the fiddling was the Managing Director, the boss..
I did eventually uninstall the graphics driver, having cleaned, scanned with Malwarebytes, scanned again etc, etc.
It would not let me install the drivers again from that link or the associated zip file.

From there it rapidly went into a downward spiral to the point that on boot, it would go directly to recovery. The boot menu would not react and bootmgr was missing....
I think that the bogeyman got ahold of something fairly major inside. It's not really that much of a problem, everything was backed up. It'll be getting a little surgery today.

Uninstall everything under control panel>uninstall that has a driver and use ccleaner to delete all windows startup entries while in safe without networking. Boot up in normal and install everything back one at a time rebooting between installs.

If it was bad hardware you'd get kernel-segfaults/bluescreens or artifacts under safemode..

Also do an offline startup, MBR, VBR scan to see if it really isn't malware. Malwarebytes is garbage. Even Avira which usually gets hits before others even misses things. The symtoms seem to be from a reg-key startup entry or extended system driver.

By the way why don't companies use volume-restore on boot solutions anymore to never have these problems? Hell I put these on intranets in the 90s and had a self-healing network that you had to destroy hardware to cause maintenance overhead.. You needed authentication to write changes to the restore volume.

Replace the hard drive. It's cheaper than wasting your time trying to unscramble a screw up. If it's an old computer, change the computer. Works every time.

I take it you missed the part where it had bad hardware. Motherboard was R&R, Terminal up and running.

Waves to all,
