Ok I came home from work and my computer was in the middle of a reboot, I found this odd. I proceeded to wait and see what happened, perhaps updates or something but then instead of going to my log in screen it just went and rebooted again. This kept happening. I went inside the computer... cleaned out some dust (that was due and was going to be a long weekend job this weekend) checked connections and what have you. Then I tried turning it on. Still was doing it. Again I took the side off and once again double checked connections. Everything seemed alright and finally the computer was able to boot. However it was EXTREMELY slow. So here are my current tech specs from the system properties:
Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit OS
Intel Dual CPU E2140 1.6GHz
4.0GB of RAM
The problems I have narrowed it down to are possible HDD failure which would of course require me to getting a new HDD. Could be a power supply issue, though highly unlikely just since I have been considering upgrading it I thought I would mention that. RAM too low is another thing I considered, its been 4GB for a while. And finally perhaps it could be a processor/motherboard issue.
Oh, and for the record I also have 2 HDD's one is a 600GB and the other is a 250GB. The 600GB one is the one I believe is failing... Not 100% sure, but both are Western Digital HDD's not sure much beyond that as at the moment I don't wish to shut down computer now that it is operating, albeit a lot slower.
Any thoughts or advice would be appreciated.
