|Basically, my hard drive is dying. The chances of the PC booting up is once every 10 times I fiddle around with it and it keeps needing disk checks. The disk is ticking and some files are slowly getting corrupted.|
In my oppinion the only thing I can do is back up windows onto a CD and backup my files. But I'd really like a way for it to continue working.
I have a small drive that I tried to use but it would not detect it or the drive I'm using now. I feel like the only way to keep the PC alive at all is to leave it switched on. I'm backing up some files on a website I own but I'd really like to still be able to use my PC.
Also, I've noticed my CPU fan seems to have slowed down. One of the times I tried to switch the PC on the CPU fan didn't start at all so I had to restart the computer.
I think I'm getting a new computer anyway. But I want to hold my current one together for now until I can get the new one.
Any ideas of stuff I can do? I've disk checked and defragged (almost every day now) and it helps for a little while but it's not perminant
