I have a computer with Vista installed (I hate it). It recently would freeze a lot. I would occasionally get the blue screen of death or a disc read error but usually a few restarts would take care of it. When it freezes or gets the blue screen I hear a short high pitch sound.
Now it will not load windows. My restore disc will not load even when have the cd rom boot first.
I think it might be a bad hard drive. I was thinking of buying a new one BUT I would need to install a operating system. I want windows 7 but if I buy that it woudl be $200 plus the cost of a hard drive. So I am looking at $250+. I could almost get a new desk top for not much more.
I called around and all the pc places want $150 or more to install Windows 7!!!
I recall years ago when I had a pc built, that they charged me something like $60 to install windows.
