The fact that you have to wait once it fails definitely points to an overheating problem. If I were you I would (carefully) try to work out which parts are very hot immediately after it fails. My guess would be that you will find it to be the processor but it could also be ram chips or something else. Then you will have to find out if it is cooled properly - it may be as simple as reseating the processor.
Yes, it does, but not as many as I encountered in Natchitoches. My family attended the First Assembly of God there, pastored by David Allen. Things were bad enough there that at one point, back in the late 80s, the big joke around town was 'don't drink the koolaid'.
Actually, I should say that WV likely has as many fundies as LA, however, the fundies seem much more crispy fried in LA.
Natchitoches is a lovely town, but also very colorful. My twin sister lives in Pineville, but she remains in close contact with some of her Natchitoches friends. She doesn't, however, remain in close contact with me. I'm the family pariah.

How tragic and inexcusable it is too that women and minorities have been oppressed these last two thousand years and longer.
