|when i boot up my PC it goes through the usual process gets to my wallpaper with desk top icons blue screen appears very quickly then re-boots. (i cannot see what the blue screen says)|
i have tried to boot up in safe mode again the system boots up but after being on for about 5 mins the pc shuts itself down.
i have tried a XP repair install but again it goes through the gathering information bit, when its about to install the files the pc restarts.
i dont want to but i may need to format the drive.
i built the pc myself about 3 years ago
no real issues with it, XP was running smoothly.
Me thinks i may have a trojan i did get 2 pop ups on boot up yesterday cannot remember what they were as i shut them down and ran my spyware software.
i have alot of photos on the hard drive i do not want to loose. if i buy a new hard drive and install XP can i then connect this hard drive and access the files on it?
Could this be an issue with the hard drive or a software issue
