My hard drive seems to have dug itself a grave. System acts very choppy when booting and doesn't make it past the Windows loading screen. Won't boot up in safe mode, gets stuck on 'windows loading files' screen while my hard drive is going full pelt (busy light constantly on).
I was running an avg virus scan, it tried to remove a threat and now won't boot. Ran bio tests, everything else seems to be running fine.
System is just over 3 years old: Alienware Aurora: Intel core i7 860 2.8ghz, 8mb. 16gb of memory 1333mhz dual channel memory. 2 x ATI Radeon HD5670. Standard Alienware motherboard D07Awv03.
