New to forums, and windows 8. I was pretty computer literate to this point but now I feel like an idiot. I will give as much detail as possible. If any other is needed just ask. I run win8 pro 64bit. dell inspiron 1545. Has Pentium(r) dual core cpu t4300 @2.10 ghz. 3gb ram. I previously had windows 7 and a 250 gb Toshiba sata hdd. All crashed beginning of November. Replaced with: On same computer. win 8 pro and new 250gb Seagate sata hdd. This was done on 11/06/12. Been having problems with my internet connection. Use a mobile hotspot thru Verizon wireless. as of now this issue is fixed, I hope. However, a month or so ago I was having problems and contacted Microsoft. They took control remotely and got some info from them. the tech said I need something done. (saved a copy of the conversation) They tried getting money out of me to fix the problems. I told them my store was just closed down and have no income coming in. She insisted on getting me to pay for 20 mins. Was pretty pissed with the whole thing. Said she couldn't help if I didn't pay. One price was 169.00. Since installing on that date I have 8,016 Errors and warnings. I have found them and can tell what they are. Maybe not the whole functioning of them but can get to it. I have googled and youtubed videos with no help on how to fix any of this. In the event viewer, I have no idea how to go about even trying to fix any of this. But it needs fixed. I ran Ms office diagnostics that has told me its all about to crash again. or predicted a hdd fail. I have attached the conversation so you can see what was said and such. No viruses or ne of that. Just need help. Plz.
