I have had 3 blue screen shut downs and restarts ( I use windows 7 home). my computer also occasionally freezes, the mouse works but nothing else for about a minute when I open internet explorer or chrome from time to time.
Im trying to figure out if its a hard drive problem or something in the operating system. I have a sony vaio and did a complete recovery down to the factory settings. that didn't fix the problem.
according to HDD scan I have Ultra DMA CRC errors. The event log shows essent 508 warnings. the disk check came back clean though. Do I need a new hard drive? the one I have is less than 2 years old. Thanks.
