This is my first post so please tell me if I need to provide any extra information.Also, I'm not great with comptuers so please use "N00B" Friendly language and clear instructions =)
As the title says i can't complete the System Rating that comes with Windows 7 (I have Windows 7 Ultimate x64 with SP1), I get to the part of the Windows Experience Index Rate this System where it says "Assesment Complete" Then it comes up with a Windows Error message, which never manages to load before the system freezes - the mouse is still responsive however Ctrl+Alt+Del takes about 5 minutes to respond and when it does the screen goes black and comes up with a message giving me the option to click ok, and when i click ok it takes me back to the frozen system. Also sometimes when i am downloading and installing things, mainly installing i have the same problem as above (the freezing and irresponsive Ctrl+Alt+Del. Through some research things seem to point towards a Hard Disk fault so I am going to provide some information with things i have previously done with the Hard Drive.
This Hard Drive is new, When i was first installing Windows 7. Windows couldn't Identify any Drive to Install Windows onto so I researched it and was told to do this - Which fixed it.
-run diskpart command from a prompt.
-Then each of these commands, followed by the enter key after each one.
-list disk (to show the ID number of the hard disk to partition, normally Disk 0)
-select disk 0 (change 0 to another number if applicable)
-clean (this deletes all partitions)
-create partition primary size=80000 (creates a partition with 80 GB space; to use the entire disk as one partition, omit the “size=value” parameter switch; use a similar command to create more partitions if needed or create in Windows 7 after installation)
-select partition 1
-format fs=ntfs quick
Please Help I am also currently running a "dskchk /f /r" which is on Stage 5 of 5 24 Percent Complete (15715454 of 102998942 free clusters processed) and at the rate of 1000 Clusters every 6 seconds I've calculated it will take about 6 days to complete, should I Stop it? It's also making a weird buzzing sound while It's doing this.
