On my old windows 7 premium desktop , i started having problems with it , it started getting hard to boot up , i would have to use last best known configuration , this worked sometimes , sometimes not , later the problem got gradually worse the screen would come on saying windows starting and have a double overlay effect blue and red etc, on the words , later when trying to run the repaid on the pc it would start and go over 3/4 the way across and freeze up and the rest of the bar line would go checkered black and red or black and blue , sometimes the screen would start to boot up and had lines up and down on it red or blue on black back ground . sometimes lines across the other way and never come up .
luckily i had enough time to back most things up when it started going bad , before it stopped booting up all together .
also luckily i had already had my hal transferred to my windows 7 laptop and everything on it .
my question to you is , i tried repair disk and it didn't help or load , this hard drive i replaced a while back and had forgot to partition the recover on it so it didn't have that when i put it in it loaded my windows seven system on it (i think they call it logic back up from the mother board .
anyway , what i want to know is does anyone think it may have just been the hard drive was bad and so wouldn't load anything with windows system?
I found a 2 terabyte hard drive on ebay for it for around 59 dollars free shipping (new) that will fit my pc . (i don't think it was a hardware issue because my wife had the exact same e machine model and i tried it in her pc and it did the same thing would not boot up etc.
Anyway for anyone who has pc smarts i am wondering about if it was just the hard drive needed to be replaced.
