Seatools gave me the all clear, on all tests, so I don't know what exactly could cause it, maybe the hardware is just worn out as it is an old notebook?

Dig did you run that surface scan mate as if you are suspecting age to be the problem it should come up as bad or having a lot of errors on it's physical surface.

Hi..I think I've found our answer because it just finished working for me...please turn on power tap F8..until repair computer..enter when the repair-restore window appears click command prompt....type regedit then type chkdsk...if the result says f parameter not specified...type chkdsk/r and watch it go like crazy through 1000s of files for quite a while..if you dont get proper result tye chkdsk/f and one of these im pretty sure will take care of it..good luck

Yes well if you look that is what I did ask Dig to do that in post#2 but I suppose I should have been a little more explicit and include that in that tutorial Option 2 there are the /f and /r options which have worked on a number of occasions for fixes I have done as well as on my own machines.

It is as well to have another look too in that tutorial to see how to type that in the command line as the drive letter comes before the /f and /r and you can type both in and not have to run /f then /r separately. Disk Check
