comment Why does a system hang after it has been running for over 12 hours?
Apologies, but I didn't state that the motherboard is faulty but rather that it has aged quite a bit (well, it's actually just short of 3 years).

It's happened before, and something I've generally observed with HDDs. When using an SSD however, speed increases were prominent and the system could endure around 48 hours before experiencing this trouble. However, I will try a new motherboard - it has aged quite a bit now. All system drivers are up-to-date too, and diagnostics don't report any trouble with the HDD itself. Someone once mentioned that it might be something to do with the way Windows handles its page file and suggested switching to Windows Server 2008 or Linux, albeit I'm unsure of what it is to determine the best option.

Thanks, but how can I reset group policy settings? I can't even enable the administrator account.

Apologies for the bump, but could it be that the PCB is faulty and needs replacing?

comment Seagate barracuda 2TB drive not loading/freezing system
Hmm, I've tried this with another drive before but was wondering if this would ultimately brick the drive once the temperature drops -- I mean, wouldn't it result in the ice/whatever liquidating, thereby resulting in water in the drive?
