Ive had xp installed for a while with no problems. Now all of a sudden, the hard drive on is just working like crazy ... CPU load's @ 50 - 70 % on idle ... I scandisk'd , defragged full ... still doing it.. it's almost impossible to run any games on it. In the root of E: there's hiberfil.sys which is 600 megs and pagefile.sys which is 800 megs .. is this normal ? I had too much to loose If I format, any ideas ? Thanks in advance..
