went ahead and ran sfc /scannow. everything went well. so far it hasn't froze yet but i've notice that it's taking a really long time loading cnn sports page. I have cnn.com as my homepage, it loads that no problem. If i click on anything in the menu it loads it no problem except the sports. it just stays loading for a few minutes. I need to refresh of click on home then try again. Any suggestions? Again all suggestions are greatly appreciated.

Use partition magic to convert to NTFS, this will convert the file format without the loss of data, this is what i use to change FAT32 to NTFS.

I think you can change the file system in My computer - Administrative Tools - Computer Management - Disk Management, not sure as mine is already NTFS, but i think you can if your file sys is FAT32, as it will change from FAT32 to NTFS, but not the other way round.

Freezing could also be the first signes of your video card on its way out, i know this as i have had to replace mine due to this, if you can get hold of another card to try, this would prove it one way or another.

i went and converted to ntfs but it was still freezing. then insomniac suggested it do sfc /scannow and that seem to do the job. Thanx to everyone that took their time to help me out. i really appreciate it.

Why would you suggest that when XP has that ability built-in?

I already explained how to do that in XP, and you [b]CAN[/b] convert from NTFS to FAT32 using a third party tool, but data corruption may occur.

You can't say that with any certainty, and you are just having a wild guess which isn't based on any fact or logic.


This isn't picking on you, but I can't stand it when people post crap as if they are an expert.
