Windows 7: Memtest86+ crashes as soon as it starts

Thats not great news, i would get any important data off of the disk asap to be on the safe side before proceeding

Sometimes bad blocks are written out and not used anymore and the disc will still function ok, sometimes its a sign of a failing disc thats about to give up
Its your call if you want to persevere with it but get your data backed up just in case

ok I just tried the sfc /scannow in the commmand prompt.

It began verification phase of system scan. it got to 13%.
Then it said: Windows Resource Protection could not perform the requested operation.
And then it quit.

I will try the disk check now.

I just got done with chkdsk /f /r.

It ran for a while and fixed some stuff (clusters i think)
then the system rebooted and it said it was clean. I'm guessing that's a good thing, but
I'm not sure what I should do from here.

Well I suppose the scannow would be worth a try.

hmm ok I will start backing things up.

I tried scannow again, it got to verifying 40% this time, then gave the 'could not perform the requested operation.'

The laptop is like 4 years old. The hard drive is only a few months old.

Yes mate it might be good to get all of the data you need off and then re install.

If that goes gaga then the drive neeeds replacing while still in warranty - a pain but personally what I would do.

Agreed ^^

Thats two seperate programs finding errors with drive, if its only that age i would back up everything you can and RMA the drive for a replacement as it will still be under guarantee

Right on Pauly sounds like it's cactus or heading that way.

ah damn, ok. what does 'RMA the drive' mean? just return it to the manufacturer?

I just re-installed windows like a week ago (I uninstalled it hoping to fix some of these errors), and it was a pain in the ass. I had to try about 5 different boot cd's and usb boot drives, before it finally worked, because I kept getting random errors during installation.

So do you think I should try and reinstall again? or just replace the drive?

Thanks,
Paul
