    Hi there,

    Do you have any usb devices attached to the machine? If so, then I would recommend unplugging them and seeing if that solves your issue.

    Otherwise, I'd be looking at running disk checks on your hard drive

    If you know the model of your hard drive then we can match the tool.

    Otherwise, I find that seatools works for all disk at detecting errors. But won't be able to fix them unless it is Maxtor or Seagate. But its good to know if you have issues

    Instructions for running seatools are listed here as well as a download

    I'd suggest downloading/running Seatools for Dos
