You Guys Know What This Is?
Do you guys know what's up with this computer or am I gonna have to pay way too much to get something fixed?
The system starts, but then, the little light that comes on when the HD is doing something lights up and stays on... mostly constantly. It still occasionally blinks off for a microsecond, but for the most part everything is lit up.
This seems to be connected to my entire system acting crazy-slow. This is sort of similar to the effect I noticed if I did the sequence for watching a DVD wrong (there are just certain sequences of events my computer hates to deal with in relation to DVD watching). CTRL+ALT+DEL takes a hell of a long time to work, and when I get the window open, nothing is taking up huge amounts of anything.
Safe Mode works perfectly and this has kind of made me take some deep breaths and hope I didn't fuck up myself somewhere. I'm currently moving everything important off onto my laptop.
I did read somewhere that turning off Windows Search seems to help some people, but I did that (or did I?) and it didn't seem to help.
