My computer has been freezing every other click for 3 min then is fine for 30 secs ect..can't believe it only took me 10 min to log in and create this message. Today has been the worst it's ever been..some days is fine..others ehhh Think based on what others are telling me is my HD is failing..but i need to bring to best buy to have it looked at...have the 4 year accidental coverage. I have an external i want to back stuff up on but every time i click the folder to drag into the external..it won't let it...anything...does the HD need to be formatted? Also..do you think if i start up using the start disk and reinstall the OS..it will be better until i get to the store on monday? Or..once i fugue out had to copy on my HD...can i just restore ENTIRE comp..from beginning?
