Hello, My PC is about 2 years old now, I love it! Its a 300Gb Acer Aspire running windows
vista home premium 32bit.
2 days ago, I was watching some videos online when all of a sudden my internet disconnects, this is normal for my dlink to do that every once in a while, I think its
overheating or something, anyways, usealy when it does that it disables all the usb ports, so this was normal for me, so I restart my pc to get my internet back, but the only difference is this time, I get Bluescreen before the log on screen, it was so fast I couldn't read the error. Anyways it restarted itself and I ran a startup repair, and after that it was fine and I could get back to my desktop, but.....
Everything was going fine, but all of a sudden when I open chrome, my PC froze, I tried clicking everything, nothing..l..I tried Ctrl-Alt-delete....and then the screen went black, and I get a error saying "Failure - Security Options" once I clicked OK, it remained frozen. I rebooted via Power button.
I did alot of research and no success, heres all the things I tryed;
Reboot - Nothing
System Restore - Nothing
Disabling Superfetch - Still nothing
Disabling all Services - Nothing
Disabling windows Defender - Nothing
Uninstalling all antivirus crap - Nothing!?
Check Disk - Nope
Memory restore - Uh uh
examining SATA Hard disk cables - Nothing to unusual
And im pretty sure thats about all I tried. I don't really want to go and buy a new hard drive because there too darn expensive and I have a lot of important files on my current one.
Please does anyone have a solution?? this is driving me crazy and I really want to save my pc. please help! it will be greatly appreciated.
Ps Buying a new hard drive would be my last option if NOTHING works (Im going to try everything else first)
