  1. Hello Maanas

    try this:

    Boot into safe mode with command prompt (push F8 on startup and select the option)
    Type "chkdsk /r" into the black command prompt box when it come up.
    It will likely tell you that a reboot is required to run the scan, the command for that is "shutdown /r /t 0".

    this will perform a full disk check and find and fix the vast majority of errors, keep us posted with any updates!
  2. hey thanks for replying.....yeah i tried doing what u said... The first time i did chkdsk it had 5 steps and the pc again freezed at the 3rd step....so i rebooted and did it again....it completed all 5 steps this time but no improvement its still the same.

    Theres one more thing i tried doing..i changed the wire with a new one which connects the hrd disk and the mobo... but same ....it didnt help.
