Hi, this is my first post
. So heres the dealio: I have a one year old E-machines computer. Its got an AMD 64 3400+ processor, 1GB ram, a 200 gig harddrive, and a BFG 6800 GT overclocked. About 4 months ago, I was playing fear, and all of a sudden it shut off. When I started it back up, it said windows failed to start
. It then gave me the 3 options of 1. start in safe mode 2. start regular 3. start with last known good settings. start regular did not work. start in safe mode did not work. start with last known good settings worked..... for a little while. It was running fine, then it shut down again. Upon start up it did the same thing( failed to start windows, etc). I was able to get it to run a few times after that. One time it said error with harddrive, or something like that. And then it just stopped working at all. It couldnt start windows.
So then I let my mom take it to work, where she has an IT guy who fixes computers. He said it needs a harddrive. But he also said it would be tough to get one that worked because it is an E-machines. I got my computer back( not fixed) and took out the hardrive myself. It says on the back it is a seagate 200gig, 7200.7( whatever that means). It also says Ultra ATA. I looked on newegg.com, and one of these harddrives cost about $70. They dont have 7200.7's, they have 7200.9's. new model i guess. Do you think if I replace it with one of these it will work?
Also, when i first installed the 6800 GT, it said it did not get enough power. I ignored it
and played games like doom 3 and fear at the highest settings, with never a problem. They ran very smooth without any slowdown or glitches. Only one other time did the window pop up that said it did not have enough power. Should I replace the power plant too?
Thanks for reading. Please tell me any recommendations you may have!
