reformating is a bit drastic at this stage
current day computers you would expect to see a 550w psu or higher which is what they are exploring in the thread you posted

Hi slanze..

now would be a good time to download the hard drive manafacturer's diagnostic utility and run some tests on the hard drive as you may have some damaged sectors.

Also, before you do that, backup any data to disc or another hard drive whcih you consider important as this could be a sign of a failing hard drive.

If you need help determining the hard drive make/model, please follow these instructions:

- Click Start -> Run -> type:
devmgmt.msc
- Click OK
- Expand 'Disc drives' and post back on the details listed there please and one of us will be able to advise where you need to go to download a utility.

Hope that helps :)

Also, you could try installing a freeware program called SpeedFan which you can get here. Once installed, run it and select the S.M.A.R.T tab then use the dro down box to select your hard drive and click the button titled 'Perform an in-depth online analysis of this hard disk'. However, this will only be helpful/constructive if your internet is working ok.

If Dai's chkdsk suggestion doesn't help, you can find the Seagate diagnostic tools here.
