Probably your disk is going..going...gone.
Back up all the data you can as soon as possible. If you have one use a boot cd, like norton utilities boot cd and check the hdd from boot cd.
Alternatively take out the HDD and mount it on a different computer as a slave hd so that you can get out data. After you can format and reinstall windows if HDD is still physically ok.

Even better if you buy an external hard disc caddy enclosure, take out HDD from computer. Put hdd in usb caddy. Connect usb caddy to working computer and take data out.

I've been using opera browser then suddenly found out that it doesn't open anymore. what should i do?


Sounds like the installation of Opera is corrupt. If you saved the installation file, reinstall it. If not, go to their site and download the latest version and install that one. If it tells you there is already a version installed, it may ask if you want to uninstall it. You do. If it has a problem installing, you may need to uninstall it thru Control Panel>Add Remove Programs if Win XP. If Vista, the place is Programs ....
