When you replaced the hard disk, how did you move the programs and data to the new disk;, did you format the new disk and reinstalled everything? Did you clone the "broken" disk and used the image? If you used an image then you transfered all the problems and defects in the old disk to the new one (unless the clone was made while the computer was in perfect condition).

Please give us some more information. This will help us solve the problem.

When you got the computer back from the shop did you have all your applications installed like they were with the old hard disk or did you have only windows and office installed.
