I need help quick plz!!
    #2210220 - 12/30/03 05:38 PM (12 years, 11 months ago)

HELP! I'm going to include all the details, even though I'm uncertain that these details are a part of the problem...

I installed a new maxtor 160gb hard drive, and installed XP on it.

I got XP service pack 1, and enabled the oversized drive with maxtor's big drive enable software.

I installed all my favorite programs, and everything went great for about a week.

Yesterday, the computer spontaneously restarted itself. I had only one program running (yahoo instant messenger), and the computer had just been turned on. I logged on yahoo messenger and was looking at some offline messages and wham! It restarts.

When it restarted it said "operating system not found"

I cursed for a few minutes, then I tried to repair XP. The setup program informed me that the drive was not formatted.

I reinstalled everything again from scratch all over again.

Now it's running again, but (here's the current problem)but the mouse cursor will all of a sudden freeze on the screen, only to start moving again a few seconds later.

I noticed this problem early in the process of reinstalling everything from scratch, and I even started over again. This didn't help.

This god damned mouse will just freeze up, then continue, in a never ending fashion. It's got me ripping out hair folicles, so can someone please tell me what would cause this to happen?

The PC is 3 years old, and I kind of hope the fucking processor is starting to fry, so that I will have an excuse to start building my new system. But, I have no idea what it is. Please help.

BTW: (the mouse is NOT dirty inside, I already thought of that.)

Thanks a bunch!

Mine did the same thing. Turned out to be a bad dram module.

Try this. Shut it off. Leave it off for 15 minutes or so. Try to reboot and see if it does the same thing. Or if you have a can of FreeZ-It, shut it down, hose down the module, reboot.

If the problem goes away there's a good chance you've found the problem.

I had it off all night last night and it still does it today.

So you are saying the memory stick could be at fault? I could buy a new one then refund the old one (shhhhhh, don't tell.)

What is this freezit stuff, and what does it do? I never heard of the stuff.

Ok, I popped the memory stick out then put it back in, and it seems to be ok now. Maybe there was a bad connection on one or more pins.

I guess I better get a contact cleaner spray and have at it with that so the problem doesn't come back in 2 hours.

Would this have caused the severe hard drive crash that I had before? Or do I have another problem too maybe?

Thank you very much BTW!!

Edit: Fuck! It's doing it again! Should I just change the stick?

Go to Best Buy, purchase a new stick. Pop it in, if it works keep it, if not take it back.

This is FreeZ-It

I hope you were kidding about "refunding" the old module. That would be stealing and only scumbags steal.

Try pulling it out and stick it in the freezer for awhile if you can't find FreeZ-It.

Na, it has a lifetime warranty, so I would just be getting warranty service without all the red tape and delays.

Ok, so what does freezing it do? Is that a temporary or a perminant fix? How long do I keep it in the freezer?

It just cools of the module long enough to see if it's temp related which is why FreeZ-It is so good. With it you can turn off your system, hose down the module without removing it, and try a reboot.

The freezer would take longer but it may have the same effect. Call an electronics supply store and look for FreeZ-It or something similar.
