Blue screen of death/hard drive failing?
January 1, 2012 at 06:13 PM
I think the hard drive of my 7 year old desktop is starting to fail. I get the blue screen of death about once a day and am forced to reboot. If I format the hard drive, will this fix it? Or is there a simpler solution? Or do I need to replace the entire hard drive? If I do replace the hard drive, will the computer work like new? Would you recommend removing the dust from inside the tower? Also I lost my Windows XP recovery disc, so what should I do about that? Or should I just forget all this and buy a whole new desktop tower? Thanks!
