saint19 worst answer ever -1000
if you tested your system you will 99% of the time find either memory or hdd faulty and on the outside chance psu or other components
what you should have done is test the hdd, then assessed the options from there - some tools can fix those bad sectors it finds, then a simple chkdsk /r run will cure the un-accessable patition etc - easy solution
do people bother testing hardware these days or just guess stuff always?
Not to hijack this thread but you just gave me an idea. What if Tom's Hardware also gave the option for the OP to select worst answer? And if someone got worst answer enough time, they would lose points/badges and get demoted all the way back to newcomer? Lol...
