  1. Ok, my computer freezes from about instantly to 2 minutes from startup, sometimes it will stay on the Windows booting screen with the loading bar and sometimes it ALSO says Disc Read Error but not all the time. T_T

    Can anyone help? What can I do? Re-install windows?

    Disc Read Error is a HardDrive issue. That is most likely your issue.
    Have you run a HardDrive Test?

    Your hard drive manufacturer has diagnostic tools that you can run on the drive. Download them from their website. you can also build a BartPE disk if you are running XP and boot from it and run the freeware diagnostic tools in it.

    Look for the "Drive Fitness Test". "Diskette creator for Windows OS "
    HD Test

    I guess you'll have to use a friends PC to download it and burn the ISO to CD or image to floppy.
