My computer has been working fine until recently.
I started it up the other day and it took ages to get to the XP loading screen, once the XP screen loaded it then went black and takes 15mins to load to the password screen. I fill in the password and it then takes another 15mins to load onto the desktop. Something has happened and my taskbar has changed style to a silver box like style. It takes ages to load and the Wireless network connection has completely dissappeared, it is not on the control pannel either. It then just takes ages to do anything and every application becomes unresponsive when i try to load it.
It sounds wrong as well, the harddrive or whatever (the thing that makes the scraping noise when it loads) is barely working it is only happening very slowly.
Please can someone help i recently got a tv adaptor working on it and i cannot use it because my computer is on the blink.
