    I ahve a 80 gig hard drive and recently it wont load windows. the dreaded blue screen pops up and i have to reinstall windows. I have had to do this like 8 times it works for a week or so then it happens again any idea what it is, i know people have told me the hard drive is shot but dont you think it wouldnt even boot if you reinstall it. I mean it works fine for about a week then it doesent anymore

    Is SMART in the BIOS turned on?
    Go to majorgeeks.com and find a SMART utility program that can show up the health of the HDD.
    That drive might be dying.

    Might you it's just a guess.
