Re: Another Computer Problem
It won't let me format guys. I wish I could, cause I could then reload everything. It's get to the 47% range and then says insufficient memory and stops there.
I can get to the XP Setup and type "R" which is suppose to help repair XP. I tell it to format the active partition, which I think it has, and then it starts to reload XP. But it keeps freezing up after it gets about 35% of the files installed.
This all started when we lost power the other night. My son didn't mess with the BIOS because he doesn't even know what it is or how to get into it.
I'm beginning to think it is my hard drive also. It has been gradually acting funny over the last month or so, and reporting insufficient memory. I'm thinking it may have finally puked on me.
It's a Western Digital, model 26400B. It only has about 5 GB of memory. The computer is about 5 years old. So I'm gonna try and find another hard drive that is cost-effective.
"panic" only comes from having real expectations
