For the past 2-3 days, my computer has been acting funny. Primarily, it has been shutting off at random times, and sometimes not being able to boot back right away. Today it has shut off and now it will not boot properly. This is what happens: I turn on PC. I get message saying windows was shut down unexpectadly. If I choose start windows normally, I get to the XP loading screen, and then my computer restarts. If I choose to start in safe mode, I get a long list of what looks like different files, etc. I can not get past this screen. I've tried resetting BIOS. Didn't do anything. I'm trying to repair the partition after booting from the CD. Any thoughts on if this does/doesn't work? What would be the next step? My guess(I'm really not very good with computers, so I may be way off) is that unfortunately my hard drive is dying/dead.
