When you say "try to run any games or anything off of a disk", what disk are you talking about, Your hard drive, CD drive or DVD drive?

Also, when you say freezes, do you mean it totally locked up so that the mouse and keyboard do not respond or that just the program you are trying to run freezes?

Try booting to Safe Mode, even Safe Mode with Command Prompt. If that works, enter: chkdsk c: /f /r and press Enter. Reply Y when asked if you want chkdsk to run at the next boot. Reboot and let chkdsk run uninterrupted. This will take a while so be patient.

Try your game now.
