Down with Gates. Ok, I am now throughly stumped. I noticed that my backup pc was running hot. Running fine for months. just a little warmer than i liked. So I shut down the pc. And cut a whole in the top cover of the case and installed an exhaust fan blowing out the top. Worked great. the only problem i have now. is that i am having disk errors or smthn. it boots, sometimes. but when i try to run any form of diagnostics. it just suddenly reboots. i have even tried to boot from cd and enter windows setup. i get a page error in an unpaged ared error. btw. this is windows 2000 we are talking about. i tried installing xp, same thing happened. i never touched the hd in my fan endeavour. i didnt touch anything else. i am sure of it. btw. the computer runs at 98 degrees now. so that cant be it either. I am thinking i need a new hard drive. What do you all think?
