Every time I install a program on my laptop, and reboot the laptop while come back on it shuts down. When I restart the computer it wants me to do  a disk check. I have to do this two or three times. After I do a restore I have no other problem until the next install. Has anyone else had the issue?

 

Thanks

Thanks

Chuck,

I think that your system has served you well and needs to be retired - the sooner the better. Backup your data, fully and often so that the loss is minimal when it gasps its last.

You could go about replacing various pieces and parts but I think that the cost would exceed that of a new system and the reliability would be less.

You may have a problem finding a new system with W7 but it is still possible, I think. Otherwise get ready to learn W8.

Good luck and keep us posted

I believe dicke's suggestion to retire your computer is very much premature.

 

Have you run chkdsk /r?  If not, I would suggest doing this.

 

Chkdsk /r checks for bad sectors on the hdd and recovers any readable information.
 
Click on the Start orb and type in cmd in the Search programs and files box.  When cmd is seen in Programs above the Search box right click on it, then click on Run as administrator.
 
You will see a screen similar to the one below.

Type in chkdsk c:/r then press Enter.  Please notice the space between the chkdsk and the /r.
 
You will receieve the message "CHKDSK cannot be run because it is in use by another process.  Would you like to schedule this volume to be checked the next time the system restarts?  <Y/N>".
 
Type in Y and press Enter.
 
Restart your computer to start the scan.
 
This will take a while to run, please be patient and allow it to complete the scan.

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