    Hello all,

    I've been trying to post this message, but it won't go. I managed to
    post a test message, so I'm gonna post this in several parts. I
    appreciate your patience.

    My old computer is a 4 year old compaq presario, win98se, 466mhz, 192
    ram, 80GB hard drive. The hard drive is a mxtor that I successfully
    installed in 2002. For the last few months I had been getting the
    dreaded "may have developed bad sectors" meassgae on startup. After
    being on for a few weeks straight, one day IE6 refused to open.
    Thinking that it was simply time to reboot, that's what I did. And
    that's when the trouble started.

    Then you should run Scandisk with the option to do a "thorough" check. You
    could also visit the website of the hard drive maker and run a diagnostic
    test from their options.
