Best solution: dump Windows for Linux, or preferably, BSD.  This is not a joke, I'm dead serious.


 

My question is: Why would it be a good thing to put Linux on a computer with a hard drive that is about to die? Doesn''t Linux need a good hard drive to work just like any OS does?

As long as it has a USB port or CD drive, no. LiveCDs are wonderful things.

Oh, the site that was :(

I almost started to ask for more detail about that. Then remembered it really doesn't matter, because we've already got a replacement computer. Laugh

Karen: I haven't hooked up the replacement yet, but it should solve the problem. Just have too many other things going on right now to have the time to go hook up the new/used one.

I don't need to run. I always carry my "dawg," legally I might add. His .45 caliber teeth can catch any runner. Wink

 In those situations (system crash and all), the simplest solutions are usually the best.

Scandisk or Defrag.

Many times a routine defrag helps keep a drive…hole?

 

For next time. Wink
