Well I been having some problems where all of the sudden my computer freezes for 3 seconds every 15 seconds. To fix this I reboot my computer. Also some of the time when I turn off my computer the screen where it says windows is shutting down takes forever before the computer turns out. Every time I wait a long time and nothing happens till I press the reset button on my computer. I actually tested it today and it took at about 20 minutes before it turned off completely. I also get this same exact problem when I turn on my pc. The computer gets stuck on the windows boot screen like 1 or twice out of 5 tries. It just loads for ever but never gets in. To get it to work, I unplug the power supply and sata connector from the hard drive and reconnect them. Anyone know if this is a problem withing xp itself or is it the hard drive?
