I'm posting this from the family PC. My computer is borked. I'm suspecting it's the hardrive since windows no longer boots up. It's only an assumption though. Sooo, do the podcast without me.

What kind of error is it giving you? Did you put a pop tart into the DVD slot again?

Every time I try to start up my PC it just stops at the windows booting up sequence. Actually prior to this, my computer started to randomly freeze up. Now that I think about it I remember I got some message on the post screen as well, Floppy Disk fail (40) press F1 to continue.

Download a hard drive diagnostic from the manufacturer's site (WD, seagate, etc.) and run that on there to see if there's a failure.

Did you already try repairing your Windows install with the Vista disc? Or just reinstalling windows?

Actually, I was also thinking it might be a problem with my OS. But like you said I haven't taken any steps yet. Also how would I go about downloading a diagnostic for the hard drive if the PC can't boot up? I've actually been really busy these past few days and haven't had much time to try anything myself. Hopefully I will be able to this weekend but it also seems pretty packed.

You'd have to download it on another computer and burn it onto a bootable CD or flash drive, then run the diagnostic from there.

For example, this is the Western Digital diag tool: http://support.wdc.com/product/download.as...=30&lang=en

Just burn it to a disc and test the drive to see if its failing mechanically or whatever. It will save you some headaches if it is bad, so you don't waste time reloading windows when it won't work.

So turns out it wasn't my harddrive. But I still decided to reformat it. I still don't know what the problem was. I now however have windows 7. Shit looks so cash. Goodbye Mass Effect 1 saved data. :(

I recently upgraded to Windows 7 (from XP) myself. Good stuff.

Also, hi.

Welcome back DE!

Yeah I gotta say one of my favorite things about Windows is how you just "plug it in and goooooo!" Like as soon as I turned on my PS3 it automatically detected it on my network and asked if I wanted to share my files and media which I thought was pretty awesome since I never assed myself to do it before with Vista. The Tab menu bar and just the general speed. It's super fast on boot up not even funny.
