A couple days ago my computer started input lagging and eventually just stopped responding. It forced me to restart it manually and when I came back I got the error "ntldr is missing" so I deleted the partition and reinstalled Windows Xp media center. So it runs fine and after a few minutes in the desktop, it shows input lag and freezes again... This next time the error was "Unmountable_Boot_Volume" and I went into the windows recovery console and tried to run Chkdsk /r but it would get to 75% then just drop back down to 50% each time. After the crashes, anything i tried usually froze. If I waited overnight i could reinstall windows and this would all happen again. I even tried to upgrade my dell c521 bios from 1.1.2 to 1.1.4 and it is still happening. I do not know what to do anymore and have researched as much as one could on their own.
Please tell me you guys have an Idea of what is going on?

Hi Kodi15033, and welcome to BleepingComputer.

If you know what the manufacturer of your hdd, go to their web site and download their diagnostic tool and run it.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
