Now my computer won't boot normally it always goes to some startup repair. It got one result I think, it said "system volume on disk is corrupt". What's up?!?! Also I don't have the original Windows CD so I'm kinda screwed there. It won't even boot into safe mode!

Well right now I'm running the command CHKDSK C: /f /r and it has been going really good and has repaired,replaced, and supposedly fixed quite a few issues. Then it started freezing and the computer made the turn off noise again. It's still running/froze.

If either the hard drive or the partition is severely troubled...running vhkdsk /r (same as what you have initiated) should reflect an error message onscreen.

If so, write that down and post it.

Well last night we lost patience and after being able o backup files we popped the Vista recovery disk in and restored back to Vista, so now I'm running Vista and it's working. Thanks for the help though!

I suggest that you do two things immediately, even though you have an apparent momentary "solution":

a. Make a complete backup/clone of your hard drive...or at least backup desired data files.

b. Run the hard drive manufacturer's diagnostic on that hard drive.

Good luck :).

Well I am restored to Vista an it's still making the shut off noise every once and a while, usually about 5 at a time. Where do I find the hard drive diagnostics?

At the website of your hard drive manufacturer.

You can see that info by...Start/Run, type devmgmt.msc and hit Enter. Disk Drives list.

Free Hard Drive Testing Tools - Hard Drive Diagnostics - http://pcsupport.about.com/od/toolsofthetrade/tp/tophddiag.htm

Download the diagnostic, follow manufacturer's directions for using.
