I am having trouble re-installing Windows 7 after a clean format and I'm beginning to believe my drive has actually gone bad. I believe this because I have tried multiple times to do a clean install and the install process runs much slower than what it has any other time I have tried to install Windows 7 on any other computer. The farthest I've gotten was into the "expanding windows files" but even that took me 12 hours. Even just to format the hard drive took just a little over an hour. Ive tried removing all my ram but one stick, still no luck. Also everything but my monitor, keyboard, and mouse are unplugged from the pc, and all BIOS settings have been restored to default settings. Motherboard is an Asus P7P55LX. I'm starting to run out of idea's besides maybe that the drive is trashed. Any other suggestions would be appreciated though.
