Lately my computer has been freezing alot. I ran a diagnostics test today and received an error code 2000-0142 Hard Drive 1 - self test unsuccessful Status:79. does anyone know what that means?
I turned off the user control as someone suggested me to and now it doesnt exactly freeze as it did before. But now, my window's explorer freezes everytime I move an item to another folder or I delete an item, so all i have to do is restart it to get it working again but it's just reoccuring and it gets annoying.
There are also times when i hibernate my computer but all it does is hibernate for a few seconds then automatically turn back on. If anyone knows anything, please help me! xD
I already tried system restore to where it didnt happen before. I also tried defrag, scanning for viruses, spybots, and adwares but still nothing changes.
One more thing! Is it normal for my screen to blink 2-3 times after start-up? It works perfectly fine after that though. Thanks in advance!
Solved! Go to Solution.

There are a few possibilities for your error:
Possibly, a new program you installed is conflicting with something else. Try uninstalling anything you may have installed recently and seeing if the problem persists.
It could also be that there was a bad Operating System installation. You may have to completely uninstall and reinstall your OS.
Or...your HD could be damaged. This is what most over-the-phone technicians will tell you and if the computer is still under warranty is usually the way most people go.
Hope this helps.
