  1. Hi :)

    Run a hard drive test in DOS...HIRENS CD etc, it sounds like a failing hard drive...

    All the best Brett :)
  2. Sounds like, what Brett is saying,DaneMcAfee.
    So i would follow his good advice.
    Mind you did you just buy the laptop, I mean if it was pre installed then it must be fairly new. Or did you install windows 8 on it yourself Dane ?
  3. No, windows 8 was pre-installed.
  4. I am not exactly technologically intelligent, but what is DOC and HIRENS CD, sorry for my ignorance.
  5. If you just bought it and this is happening take it back.
    Most places have a 90day window for these things to happen.
    Don't monkey around with it on your own, especially if you don't know what you're doing.
