Over the past few days, my computer kept crashing every half hour or so, today it got worse, and it was crashing every 5 minutes or sooner. The computer just restarted and did not display the BSOD, and it did not ask to send an error report. I went and put the crash dump through the debug program and it said it was caused by portcls.sys (might be different by a few characters) I was about to upload the dump file to here, but now the monitor is not detecting the computer, and the hard disk light on the computer is flashing, but not as if it is busy it's flashing every second steadily as if to show there is an error. At first I thought this was a driver issue, but now I'm thinking it's a virus or the hard drive has gone. Any suggestions what to do?
