Hello -

2 places to start -

 

1/ Please post a snapshot with Speccy for more system details -
How to Publish a snapshot with Speccy <<--Full Directions Here (only post the link)

 

2/  Run a Disk Check on your C: drive in Windows Vista or Windws 7:
• Click the Start button and select Computer

• Right-click on C:(or your main hard drive letter) and select Properties

• Click on the Tools tab

• Under Error-checking click the Check Now... button and click Continue at the User Account Control prompt

• Mark the 2 boxes next to Automatically fix file system errors and Scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors

• Click on the Start button

• When the message box pops up, click the Schedule disk check button and Restart your computer

• Once your computer restarts it will check the drive, don't press any keys so that it is allowed to complete

This will take (on average) 1 to 2 hours to finish, so please let it finish the 5 stages

Do not force a reboot during the scan, as you may damage important files

When finished the computer will reboot back to Normal mode and be OK to use -

 

We will look at your Speccy scan when you post it

 

Thank You -

I would run the appropriate hard drive diagnostic...if same problem exists over 2 different O/Ses.

 

WD Support - Data Lifeguard For DOS - http://support.wdc.com/product/download.asp?groupid=613&sid=2&lang=en

 

Data Lifeguard Diagnostic Manual - http://www.wdc.com/wdproducts/library/other/2779-701022.pdf

 

Long/extended diangostic is the one I'd run.
