hi my cpu cooler fan died and i replaced it and did a factory recovery that said it completed successfully. but when i restarted my comp it sets me back at the safe mode page i have triied all boot options and the comp just goes into a restart and sets me back to the safemode screen or it will just freeze. my question is how do i determine if its my hard drive or processor or possibly even motherboard i havent ruled out the cdrom and power supply but i figure if the recovery was sucessfull then mostlikey the cdrom is working correctly. ive read a few similar storys about the same things happening to other types of computers but the fixes didnt seem to work on my system cause it wasnt the same kinda comp this comp is a celeron systemax with a 2.4g processor. i also turned on S M A R T on the bios but doesnt seem to be helping any. i also was able to run a diagnostic test off my recovery cd and recieved error number 16 during the hard drive part of the test. does this mean i need a new hard drive? im not a computer tech but im verry mechanical id like to fix this issue on my own i just dont wanna buy 5 different parts to do it. so before i go buy a new hard drive i would like a second opinion on if its most likely the hard drive or possibly something else
