|So, I'm using my laptop as usual. One day, I switch it on and it goes to the logon. I log on and it goes to the desktop. I start checking my email as usual and......... waiting....... locked up, dead. Everything stops, the disk read light is off and that tell-tale "computer's dead" click is heard. this is all about 5 minutes after I hit the power button.|
It did that for about a day and a half. I try doing an error check and it locks up on a couple *.dll files every time. I do the error check in the DOS, outsid of windows and it locks up at a particular point when checking file # 94559 or something... EVERY time. It's been about 4 days and when I boot up normally, it locks up almost instantly (now).
I can still use it to some extent in "Safe Mode w/ Networking", but it's limited.
I did a Drive check in the boot up command area and it said to "replace the Disk" (I didn't get the error number). That freaked me out.
SO, I, being lame and not getting one sooner or making one when I got the computer, ordered a boot disk from HP (my computer's an HP...) and I HOPE it will help to resolve some of the agravation I'm suffering at the hands of my twisted computer.
