Im at my wits end at the moment. Im very close to taking it into a repair shop but it's an absolute last resort as Im low on funds.
Ill make the problem(s) as simple as I can, straight to the point as it were.
During the hot weather (no idea if the heat is relevant or not) my PC all of a sudden wouldn't turn on. It simple went into an endless cycle of restarting itself. (got just past the Windows logo screen, had a brief flash of a blue screen and restarted)
I did a bit a research into the problem; one of the solutions was to try a Format of the hard drive.
So, I proceeded to do the Format from a dvd disk. (done many times before with no problems) It gets various ways through the Format and comes up with an error and says the Format was unsuccessful. (without doing it again I cant remember the exact error message but it was something about the hard disk corruption of fault)
Could these two problems be connected? If so is there anything I can do to fix it?
Any help very much appreciated!!
(mu knowledge of this kind of thing is limited, but Im by no means a pc novice)
