Try to do a complete reinstall. You will need to delete partitions, and create new ones.

My computer crashes a lot. How do I fix?


You may run or perform Disk Error Checking(This is for Windows XP SP3):
* Chkdsk (Chkdsk.exe) is a command-line tool that checks volumes for problems. The tool then tries to repair any that it finds. For example, Chkdsk can repair problems related to bad sectors, lost clusters, cross-linked files, and directory errors.

** How to run CHKDSK at the command prompt:
  1. Click Start, and then click Run.
  2. In Open, type cmd, and then press ENTER.
  3. Use one of the following procedures:
  • To run Chkdsk in read-only mode, at the command prompt, type chkdsk, and then press ENTER.
  • To repair errors without scanning the volume for bad sectors, at the command prompt, type chkdsk volume:/f, and then press ENTER.

    Note If one or more of the files on the hard disk are open, you will receive the following message: Chkdsk cannot run because the volume is in use by another process. Would you like to schedule this volume to be checked the next time the system restarts? (Y/N)

  • Type Y, and then press ENTER to schedule the disk check, and then restart your computer to start the disk check.

  • To repair errors, locate bad sectors, and recover readable information, at the command prompt, type chkdsk volume:/r, and then press ENTER.
  • Once done with chkdsk r, run FIXBOOT and press ENTER.

    Note If one or more of the files on the hard disk are open, you will receive the following message: Chkdsk cannot run because the volume is in use by another process. Would you like to schedule this volume to be checked the next time the system restarts? (Y/N)Type Y, and then press ENTER to schedule the disk check, and then restart your computer to start the disk check.

    Tip

    How to check the PC system for errors, repair the damages or check disk.


    1.) Go to 'Start'

    2.) Press run and type CMD
    (You will see a box eg: C:WINDOWSsystem32CMD.exe )

    3.) Type CHKDSK , press enter
    *CHKDSK is verifying files (stage 1 of 3) You have to wait for a few seconds/minutes.
    Then you will get a message 'run chkdsk with /F (fix) option to correct these'.

    4.) Type CHKDSK /F . press enter
    ( *Remember there is a space between Chkdsk and F: chkdsk<space>/F )
    Again, you will get a message 'chkdsk cannot run because the volume is in use by another process. Would you like to schedule this volume to be checked the next time the system restarts? (Y/N)

    5.) Type Y
    You will get a message ' This volume will be checked the next time the system restarts.

    6.) Now, exit the box and restart your computer.
    It will the check the disk. You will see this on your screen as you restart 'A disk check has been scheduled. Windows will now check the disk (stage 1-5)'

    *Note: It will take some time to check your system disk. You need to perform 'check disk' regularly so that you can speed up your PC performance and to repair damages in your system.
    * You can try it on any kind of Windows PC.

    Computer shuts off when booted, shut off right after welcome scre


    If you can get into the bios screen, try loading the default settings.
    If you are running XP and have an install CD, you can try to boot from it and choose the "R" or repair option.
    When you get to the command prompt, run chkdsk/r to repair any HD file issues.
