About a month ago I built my computer and all was fine. I have a 320GB SATA Seagate HDD. Now ever since my stupid mother went to turn off my computer Windows wont boot. What happens is that the Windows loading screen comes up and then the progress bar stops at three runs. I did fix it by booting the XP CD and going into repair mode. In there I fixed the MBR by doing 'fixmbr' then I fixed the boot by doing 'fixboot' and then I finished it off with 'chkdsk'. I rebooted it and it was fine. Last night I turned it off PROPERLY and then today I boot it up and it does the same thing. Could my Hard Drive be dying? Right now I'm repairing Windows (its recopying all the system files) Safe mode boots fine. What do I do now? I have another HDD I can copy all my Videos, Downloads, Music, Photos and such to, but I don't want to reinstall Windows (if I have to) and reinstall ALL my drivers and programs.
