  1. Hi all I put another thread up yesterday as when I plug laptop in to external monitor the colour goes red and blue but only this week it started it has been fine up till now.

    but now I noticed I go on to desk top and try to do anything and it freezes so I decided to use the onboard factory format that was at 6pm yesterday and its still only on 64% and its now be running 16 hours something seriously wrong is it ram hard drive or cpu .. all help appreciated

    Should have run CHKDSK C: /F /R first to ensure you're not fighting with massive sector relocations :(

    Sounds like you're up a creek - - let it finish!!!
