Question about Toshiba Satellite R10-S802TD Tablet PC
I recently notice my laptop started making a strange noise when I turned it on, almost like a disc turning and then stopping. A few days later, I went to turn it on and it displayed the message that the computer was not properly shutdown and had to be restarted. I picked to start in safe mode. It would then display a screen full of DOS commands and go to the Windows screen, but after that it quickly flashed a blue screen and turned off. It would then restart and go through the entire process again. I'm wondering if this is a virus or if it's a pc problem, especially since I noticed the noise a few days earlier? If it is a virus, can anyone tell me how to fix it, if possible? Thanks!
Sounds like a hardware problem. And since your computer is failing like that, my guess is it is the hard drive making that noise. You need to isolate the location of that noise. If it is coming from the hard drive I suggest you back up your data *immediately* using some kind of CDROM based disk imaging software where you can boot to the cd (so you use the hard drive as little as possible). One such program is Image For Linux (http://www.terabyteunlimited.com/image-for-linux.htm)
