    Hi JinGz,

    That doesn't sound good.. I'd re-install the os again, if you still get problems your HDD might have corrupt sectors. If you can boot into safe mode and do a scandisk you may be ok but otherwise re-install and start again.

    Hi JinGz

    Not too sure of what you can do here!! Kemical is probably right about re-installing the OS.
    Before you consider that option , have a look at the link below and try that

    Disk boot failure.

    Hi JinGz,

    sounds like a good idea. If you could attach the HDD thats giving the problem to another pc (maybe a friend could help?) you could try and analyse it to see if it's on it's way out... Anyway whatever you end up doing, I hope it goes well for you..:D
