Somebody please help!
I like to think I know a little bit about computers but this one has me really stumped and I am now almost bald!!
My computer recently (HP A6635uk) started playing up. For some reason when I turned it on one morning, half of the desktop icons had vanished. It wasn't the "unused deskop items" cleanup thing that cleared them, they just vanished.
Just been away for a week and swiched on my computer and for some reason took about 5 minutes to boot up. Left it on all evening and then shut it down. Turned it on next morning and asked me to select which user and then it just froze. went to make a cup of tea and came back and all still the same.
Did a "safe mode" start and that worked ok.
Had my Windows 7 disks delivered week before last so figured I'd just wipe everything and start a fresh.
Now can't get windows 7 to install. I've formatted the drive. Tested it and the drive is fine. on the install it always crashes in the same place. It installs and unpacks everything. Restarts and it says "completing setup" or words to that effect and then just hangs.
So completely at a loss and need some help. It's 1:15 and I have to go to work tomorrow after my week off and I need help as I know I'm not giving up yet!!!
