Hi. I have an old Compaq laptop (says Presario A900 on it) running on Vista. A while ago, it froze, so I had to press the power button until it turned off. Now, when I turn it on it starts up normally with the black screen and the 30 secondseconds to start Windows regularly. I can log in fine, but if I click on Chrome and search something, it freezes. Sometimes I don't even get that far. I click on the Start button and the blue loading circle comes up. It doesn't do anything after that. The circle keeps going like something's loading. Occasionally it will freeze and I have to manually restart it. What's going on? Thanks.

Download UBCD. Burn the iso to disk on a Windows 7 or later computer by right clicking the iso file and selecting Burn Disk Image. At the UBCD menu screen select Seatools for DOS. Do the short and long tests.  If it does not detect your hard drive at the UBCD menu select Parted Magic. Once on the Parted Magic desktop click on the desktop icon labeled Disk Health. Do the short and long tests.

 

If you do not have a Windows 7 or later computer to burn the iso you can use Imgburn.
