This started last monday but I use firefox mostly.
Unfortunately windows is required for this assignment.

whenever I open internet explorer 7 everything seems to load just fine. some websites are perfect. however i have noticed that when i load yahoo mail, when i try to open a message its blank where the message should be. the headers are there and everything else but the message. And thats with EVERY message. I use myitlab.com for a course and i cannot get that to work either. when I tried to system restore, that will not load. The windows update website will not open or load. the search options on the computer (for searching for files) will not completely load. the actually search boxes will not load.

I have tried everything and i have no idea what the problem is. virus scan and spyware scans have come back empty. any help would be great.

thanks.

this is probably gonna sound stupid, but does it say anything when its done? I mean to let me know everything is fine or not? because it ended and nothing happened.

thats to be expected
if anything was wrong
it wouldve asked for windows cd

try this

start/run/chkdsk /r click ok

note the space between k and /

type y and press enter
just restart your computer
this takes about 1 or 2 hours
do not disturb this

The completion of the function is the important thing.

How about a look in Event Viewer for errors which may provide clues?

this started happening around the 26th and there was a bunch or warnings and errors that day but i do not understand them (especially since it was off most of the day.)

It started with this
Source CDROM

An error was detected on device \Device\CdRom0 during a paging operation.

For more information, see Help and Support Center at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/events.asp.

ok that happened a lot within a couple of minutes.


then the computer was turned off and it went downhill..

When i turned it back on...

source: disk

The device, \Device\Harddisk0\D, has a bad block.

OK, thanks.

Now I want you to go to Control Panel/Performance & Maintenance/Administrative Tools/Computer Management/Disk Management.

Can you tell me what is listed for each drive, starting in the section listing Disk 1?

The error message about CD-ROM 0 doesn't concern me, that should be generated anytime a disk cannot be read (for whatever reason). For example, a dirty disk may not be read the first time, but eventually it often will be read.

But the error message about a bad block in a hard drive...that's a different matter. The only problem I have with that is...hard disk 0 should not reflect a drive letter of D:, it should be C: and I want you to verify that Disk 1 in Disk Management reflects your boot/system drive as Disk 0.

Thanks.

Nothing says Disk 1. It refers to Disk 0.

So I am unsure if any of this is right.

It says Disk 0 Basic 34.32 GB online. Then it says 39MB FAT Healthy
(C:) 34.28 GB NTFS Healthy (System)

OK.

Go to Event Viewer and see if you can find any errors reflected there that pertain to either of the drives. If they relate to anything else, just ignore them for the moment.

Post the detail exactly as it appears, thanks.

When you find an error, double-clicking on it will reveal the details for that error.

Those don't look like they relate to any drive installed...which is what I'm focused on right now.
