Cliffs below... I decided to upgrade the memory on my computer because it's been seeming to run slow lately, and I've tried all the simple tricks and nothing is working (defrag, clearing out porn from harddrive, tried to clean registry, etc.) So I get the memory sticks (moving from 2 128 RAMBUS sticks to 2 512...it's an old Dell...yes, I know RAMBUS is old, outdated, and overpriced). I had been thinking I might as well run a Check Disk before I put the new memory in, and that's when shit hit the fan.....Check Disk ran for 3 days straight while continually going through a cycle of "Bad sector in 75991, Bad sector in 75992, etc." Somewhere in the third day it shuts itself down and now boots straight to a blue screen that looks like DOS (BIOS, I assume?) with some options, but I can't get to Windows. Obviously I don't know a lot about computers (except breaking them, apparently) My question is: Where do I start to repair this? Is it probable the hard drive is a lost cause? Do I need to update the BIOS? Too much porn? CLIFFS: Ran Check Disk, computer now boots to BIOS, and I don't know where to start to fix it. Any help is appreciated.
