Anything that I have tried does not fix this problem. Never had problems with preformance, crashes, or freezes. Not willing to buy a new version of Windows 7 home premium 64 bit. I do not have a boot/repair disc. Memory on the hard drive is about half full, 1TB. Can anyone help me? I do not hear the normal noise from the hard drive.
