This is my first post here after many years of receiving help for G4TV Tech Sup[ort Forum which was stopped a few months ago by G4TV I presume. I hope to get help here with a very unusual problem described below.
1. Ran disk cleanup and defrag
2. Ran chkdsk /r
3. Ran msconfig and unchecked all programs under the startup tab
4. Ran System Restore and restored system to 2 available restore points
5. Restored recent backup image
6. Did repair install
This is the first time I've had an identical problem occur on 2 different PCs simultaneously and the first time I've had the restore of a recent backup image fail to fix any Windows problem. I now wonder if even a fresh install will fix the problem. Both the PCs were originally setup with IDE hard drives and ran without issue for several years, but both PCs were upgraded to sata drives within the past 6 months. Could sata drives be an issue on some systems, and would reverting to IDE drives fix the problem? Does anybody know of possible cause or fix for this problem?
