hi people, i need some advice here.
my computer is very very unstable after i added a brand new maxtor ultra fast 80gb harddrive. after i installed the harddrive, i partitioned it with the old f-disk tool from a win98 bootdisk(i done this many times before partitioning other hd), and i made it 55gb (c:\ and 25 (e:\, in addition i also have a quantum 40gb harddrive which takes the d:\ drive slot.
everything went quite smooth after winxp pro was installed to c:\, and all my other apps like office, photoshop, nav, were installed smoothly, had a few virus attacks but was safely recoverred by Norton AntiVirus 2004 Pro and i always have auto protect on.
now here is the problem, about one week after everything was installed, my winxp pro crashed when i was browsing internet, and it automatically rebooted by the crash, after the reboot, i was not able to access my harddrive again, it said "invalid system disk"....
i wasn't thinking much at the time so i reformmated the computer, spent another 3 hours to install all the stuff again, everything went smooth like the first time
2 weeks later, same stupid thing happend again without even a sign, i was browsing internet and computer crashed. auto reboot lead me back to the "invalid system disk" message...
i dont really wanna format my computer every week or two, this is too annoying, i hope to find the source of this problem, can anyone give me some input? thanks
