Hey guys, I'm just about to order a whole buncha parts for this one pc that keeps pissing me off. It keeps getting the windows files corrupt or windows stops booting randomly and other times will boot. What is this caused by? I installed windows on a partition taking all the space on the drive, Which was a "nts something" partition, I forgot which kind but it was definitely NOT a fat32. And yeah, It keeps crapping out. The harddrive is very loud, But S.M.A.R.T. shows it as being in perfect condition. I got no idea, I installed the programs and ran a defrag and gave it back to the guy. After a couple weeks it's bad again, He reports either no bootup, Or really slow bootup. The slow bootup happens more right after the comp crashes. Ok, Now *** is happening? Could this be attributed JUST to the ram and harddrive? The mobo is the stock ibm one i believe *on boot up it says IBM* and the proc. is a 1.7 ghz willamette. I was about ready to completely redo it, But if it's simply just something wrong in the way I'm installing the OS that's causing crashes? It's not overheating, It basically runs at room temperature, And all other components are at or slightly above room temperature. Around 20-24 Degrees C*. Not a PSU either. Yeah... What can I do? Just a faulty harddrive/How I'm installing it?
