My computer is not doing well. I have been getting more and more frequent blue screens over the past few weeks. The codes vary, so I'm not sure what to post in that regard. Sometimes the machine won't boot at all, sometimes it can't find certain boot files, and other times it acts like nothing was wrong in the first place. The past couple days it will lock up pretty much any time I try to use a web browser. Sometimes it just stalls out for a few seconds and goes back to normal, other times it stalls out then gives me the stop screen. I had the guys over in the malware forum check it over first, and malware has been ruled out. I don't know if Windows XP is corrupted or the HDD is going bad, but I also don't really know where to start. Any suggestions?
P.S. Any advice someone can throw at me quickly would be appreciated (even if it's "start shopping")- I don't know how much longer the machine is going to last!
