Reinstalling Windows Formatting Error
I have come in search of some help, i recently posted stating that my computer was being a pain in the arse. Many suggestions were to reformat and reinstall windows.
Today i had finally finished backing up all my stuff onto an external hard drive, however my attempt to install windows has not been at all good.
I get quite easily to the place where you need to format the hard drive - NTFS formatting - not the quick one, i get to around 25%. At this point my computer crashes, occasionally when this occurs, i get the blue screen
DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL this usually occurs with Stop 0000000... underneath, however it has had atapi.sys there too.
Anyone know whats going on here? i have taken out the RAM that i placed in there, fearing it maybe bad. Could this be my hard drive? Graphics Card?
Someone even suggested it could be my heatsink fan - which ill admit has been playing up slightly - temperature inside occasionally reaches 90C.
Is my PC completely down the sh*tter?
