No pattern. Now only XP boots consistently after I got rid of a lot of Virii.
A total of 9 trojans and worms to be precise.
Now even Suse10.3 won't boot.
FC7 boots sometimes and sometimes can go even till the desktop is
loading and suddenly nothing
the monitor light goes yellow as no video feed.

Could this be hardware related ?

I tested RAM with Memtest86 till Pass 2.
I tested my HDD with seatools from seagate but not in detail, just a std test.

Should I reinstall say FC8 instead of FC7 ?

I will wait naturilich. Everything is bonkers recently, my car
battery, my pc :-((

Can Suse have caused it ?
