Computer HDD Corrupt. HELP! Tags: Computer Hard Drives Storage Last response: January 2, 2012 3:29 AM in Storage Share jimmybaws January 2, 2012 2:00:10 AM Hi guys in the past 18 hours my computer will not run, it either crashes to a BsOD before seeing the desktop or a few minutes after the desktop has loaded. I know this may not be the best section to ask for help but i might aswell give it a shot. If sometimes i can get to the desktop, to the bottom right, applications keep popping up saying "example.exe" is a corrupt or invalid file. Known ones i have seen with this error are: taskmngr.exe dwm.exe ccc.exe and some others that i cannot think of. Most application i try to run always do not respond, no matter if i try to restart it. Recent upgrades: i got a radeon hd 6870 4 days ago, running smoothly no problems until now. What ive tried: switching out hard drives - no effect switching graphics cards - no effect Sometimes i can run it in safe mode sometimes i cant. at first i thought it was a corrupt HDD, but now im iffy on what the problem is. PC specs: Core 2 quad @ 2.66ghz 4gb DDR2 667mhz. p5q Se2 motherboard. Sapphire 6870 1gb/ Gigabyte 5770 1gb (Old graphics card) 650 PSU Windows 7 Home profession - 64 bit BsOD errors: BAD_POOL_HEADER MEMORY_MANAGEMENT PAGE_FAULT_IN_NON_PAGED_AREA these are the most common ones, there is a few others though. At first i thought it was a virus but when i switched out the hard drive same issue occurred. I am not a complete idiot with IT, i know my basics but this just confuses me alot. All help is appreciated, ill delete the topic if in the wrong section.
