Hello world!

Ahhh windows... you've done it again...
Okay so here's an interesting story about my windowa machine.
Now im doing a good'ol CHKDSK on my computer and everything is fine then suddenly it freezes. So knowing windows i figured okay i'll rebbot and try again, so i pressed the power button and it keeps going again. It froze multiple times and by gicing it a little "encouragment" it appears to have kept on going. Does anyone have a more... "smart" explenation for this?

Thanks in advance

Run CHKDSK from Safe mode and see how you go with it...

My guess would be that...your hard drive has problems...or it has been a long time since you last ran chkdsk on that system.

I would download and run a manufacturer's diagnostic on that drive, as a safety measure. Long diagnostic test.
