Question hello I am jjon I am having a hard driv problem


I have had the same hard drive for a year and a half and it has been fine but it is doning some weird things restarting the computer during boot-up and sometimes it stops responding when I have more then one programs running ex. media player and word. I never had this problem before and I defrag the drive 2x a month and it is ok there . I spent 200 dollars on it and dont have money to toss any help would be greatly apreciated

It might not be the harddrive giving you the problem...

My first thought because of the rebooting during start-up is that you have some corrupted driver files. To correct this make sure that you update all the drivers for your hardware and applications... This is really true if you are using an older bunch of software or hardware from the windows 95/98 computers on an XP computer.

The second thought would be that you have a virus/trojan/spyware/malware problem. Run all your protection programs and make sure that your system is clean

Start > control panel > admin tools > event viewer.
check to see if there are any warnings from within all 3 areas and then highlite the warning and double click for a more detailed look at what or where the warning originated.
