    Alright i have a huge annoying problem. Ok it started when i had my computer running and nothing was wrong and i didnt have any programs running then i left and came back maybey a half an hour later and my computer was rebooting itself. When it started it would go to that screen that says there was a problem and it asks if you want to boot windows normally so when i click it my computer will restart and do it all over again. So i finnally gave up and reformatted my hard drive but it wont let me no matter what i do. It keeps on sayin my hard drive is dammaged or corrupt or it will just reboot itself. I have tried everything people have told me to do I even FDISK it. Still nothing works. What should I do? Should i just huck it out the window and buy a new one.(I dont have the money). I really want to save it but i dont know what else to do. Any ideas?

    have you deleted you partitions and recreated them?

    if you have i think a low level format is your only choice.....

    be fore u try low leve format boot to dos and run fdisk with the /mbr switch to repair ur master boot record

    ie fdisk /mbr

    most newer hds should not be lowlevel formated only do it as last resort and make shure if u do that u use a low level format program from the manufacture
    that made the hd
