Yesterday I was online looking at stuff on e-bay, & my computer went blue screen giving an error & started dumping physical memory. I tried to reboot but my main harddrive was not being recognized, so it was saying to install disc to boot & press any key. I opened up the comp & checked all the connections to the drive, rebooted & it recognized the drive , booted up. I started playing bf2, & it would lock up at intervals. I rebooted, It started running disc check, found somem errors, fixed them, & went into windows. Now every time I open a file or window, the mouse will drag real slow. It takes 1-2 minutes to boot into windows, also. It used to take 5-10 seconds before. the drive is a seagate p ata. It might still be under warranty. ANy Ideas on how to remedy the slow boot, mouse drag & general sluggishness?
windows xp? what errors did it fix? disk errors are scary, usually means hard drive is taking a dumper.
I cant remember. I was so freaked out & didnt write anything down. The hard drive kept making a click/beeping sound as it was trying to boot into windows. I managed to back most important stuff to a back up drive just incase. I wonder will a repair or fresh install remedy any problems?
Sounds like you're experiencing hard drive failure, in which case a fresh install won't do you much good.
A little Question,how much RAM do you have ?
seagate has on line warranty check. you need to get you model number and serial number and you can see if it is still under warranty. http://www.seagate.com/support/service/
