Thank you for the information. I will store it just in case !!!!
I had another crash yesterday. I have two (2) sets of Quick Restore CD's, I got one set shortly thereafter I purchased my PC in 2000 and the 2nd set several years later, I used the 2nd CD set, and it worked, everything finally load properly but not without a fight, it took me all day to finally get back up on my PC, unbelievable.
I had to do another Fdisk and did it right this time, just by reading different material on the matter, not always understanding what I was reading, in fact, most of the time what I was reading and/or doing, but had a much better view on it, I somehow pulled it off. But ....
During that whole process yesterday, my PC was still locking up, every time it did, my heart would just sink because I thought I would have to start the whole process all over again, so what I kept doing was hitting Ctrl Alt + delete twice, I had to do this many, many, many times until it stopped locking up on me and finally got thru QR. I know this may sound crazy, but I felt like I was literally in a fight with my PC, it would hit and I would hit right back, over and over and over again, I just don't know what the problem is. I have read all the material posted on this site you Technicians have told use about, the different AntiSpyware and AntiVirus programs to download (for my Operating System of course) and installed and ran them, and I still get this noise and lock up. It's a grinding or churning sound, can't explain it. There were several times after the QR was finished and was back on my desktop where I stepping away from my PC and I heard the noise/sound and it locked up again, I wasn't even near my PC doing anything on it and it locked up, I was pissed. I was so tempted to physically destroy everything in my CPU and just throw it all away, which is what I should do, I was that ticked. Hooper, do you think it could be my Hard drive and/or C drive, or both are going bad. Could it even be my CD Rom, because with that, I have to fight taking out and putting in a floppy disk, I just don't understand.
Thank U !!!
