|Anything more than a couple of repairable bad sectors means that it was time to replace the hard drive. It should have been a sign to you that it could not be trusted any longer and you should have used it only as long as it would take to get another drive, save your files, do a clean install on the new drive, and put back your files. If you now need to save your files and if a start up repair does not fix your OS's, use a bootable CD or DVD prepared with a Live Linux (like Puppy Linux) to boot the system and try to save your files to a USB drive. Then replace the drive so you can trust the system again.|
You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
