Some more specs
AMD Athlon 1.5 ghz 512 mb ram
I have 2 hard drives
my primary is an 120 gig drive
and my secondary is a 80 gig drive
I don't remember who built what but if it is required i can look at it and tell you. I think the 120 is by sea somebody.
If you can't tell i'm not a hardware expert
At random intervals my computer will act strange, it "revs" up and drops off and repeats the cycle several times. While it is doing this the computer lags beyond belief and forgets how to open/close stuff. the solution to it is shut it down (usually requiring me to push the button because it is not allowing access to the start menu) Things act fine for a little while. Then it freezes solid i shut it off and it works for about 2 minutes(note that on the start up screen it says primary drive None secondary drive None) and freezes solid again. Finally when it goes to start up my computer again it says no drive found. I can fix this by unplugging my IDE cable from the motherboard and plugging it into the other blue (not sure of name) socket. It works for a week month 2 months and then starts over.
I took it to the computer emergency room in Endicott NY and they said that I needed to do a full reformat. So when I installed the 120 gig drive I did a full format to it. Transfered my music, pictures, videos over reformatted the 80 gig drive. Put the music pictures and videos back on it. And now I've gone since August without having it crash like that. Until 20 minutes ago.
What do I do?
Let me know if you need more information?
I appreciate the help.
