I'd suggest that the density of your disks might be different than the floppy itself.

or the floppy is broken

or there's a virus scanning going on, and the floppies are infected.

could be any of these.

LG laptop hang freeze problem


A laptop can freeze for many reasons. Often bad hardware....like USB devices, worn out hard disk, blocked fan/overheating CPU, motherboard problems especially soldering of graphics chip on more recent models. The best way to proceed is by elimination. You might consider a thorough test of hard disc using free software (available from Seagate as 'Seatools' or other from any hard disc maker). Often there can be blue screens and crashes. You can look at the event logs and get info from there. Cleaning out a blocked cooling system can cure overheating probs (they will generally occur after about 30 minutes). Software can do it also, try a new hard disc, OS and software to diagnose that. Don't forget to check your RAM also, MS have a free testing application free of charge that runs from floppy, memory stick or CD (download on line). If there is a freeze when you move the laptop or lid, it's almost certainly a bad motherboard. Hope this helps

Machine freeze every so often. Checked HD and


Does you machine produce any error messages?
One of the programs you installed is probably causing the freezes.
Try to identify any programs that freeze when you try to run them.
Uninstalling the program should help solve the problem.

You can not rule out viruses though

How do i format my packard bell easynote


Hello

  1. Step 1 Ensure that the hard disk is installed properly in the laptop. The drive cannot be formatted before it is installed, or if it's not installed correctly.
  2. Step 2 Gather the required software. The type of media will depend on the hardware in your laptop. Older computers without a CD-ROM drive, will require the use of the operating systemmag-glass_10x10.gif floppy disks. Laptops that can run Windows XP require the installation CD and product key. Older versions of Windows also have disk-formatting capability in the installation process, and the installation media is either a CD or floppy disk.
  3. Step 3 Place the installation disk or manufacturer software in the drive and then boot the computer. Early in the installation process, the Windows installer has a step that will detect any installed hard disks and allow for them to be formatted. The software from the disk manufacturer will also detect the hard disk and give you the option to format the drive.
  4. Step 4 Determine which file system is to be used. Windows XPmag-glass_10x10.gif will either work on a NTFS file system or an older VFAT file system. Choose the desired file system when prompted.
  5. Step 5 Decide whether the whole disk should be formatted or if the disk will be partitioned and each partition to be formatted separately. The Windows installer includes a menu-driven utility that will create hard disk partitions before formatting. If the hard disk is being formatted to replace an existing Windows installation, delete the existing partitions and re-create them.
  6. Step 6 Format the hard disk with the Windows installer when prompted. The Windows installer will let you know when it is time to format the disk and ask for confirmation.
  7. Hope this can help you, kind regards, andrea

Sounds to me like the cpu fan,has died and the cpu is overheating causing the freeze, the slow running, and the excessive heat. the cpu is probably fried.
