Hi everyone i've been having some pc trouble and have had many of my questions answered on these forums, and for that im thankful. Even with all the answers I still haven't found a solution.

does anyone know of any PC repair stores around my area that could run diagnostics on my PC to find the problem?

I live in Marshfield, MA. So anything around Boston or south of Boston would be great.

Do you have Yell or Yellow Pages ? That is the best place to start ;) or even Google. Let me google that for you

There appears to be quite a few computer related services in the Marshfield area. Click here to see a list on google maps. If the problem you are trying to diagnose is the same problem you wrote of in the other thread, you were probably on the right track. A computer suddenly powering down in the middle of intense gaming, but otherwise operating without incident is likely caused by an underrated power supply or in your case, a faulty one.

That being the case, I doubt any local PC store would know to check the "Rails" on a Power Supply.

9 Volt Rail, 5 Volt Rail, 12 Volt Rail, etc... Heck, I don't even know which rail might be weak, when it comes to pushing a Video card... I generally let C38368 handle those questions.

They might have extra components to switch out, to isolate which component is bad.

Oh and Google Maps is crazy. You can now get a street level view, and see which buildings are around the shop!
