Default Re: probelm with my hard drive

Turn your computer off and remove the sound card. Turn it on and before the Windows loading screen comes up keep pressing F8. Select Safe Mode and uninstall the sound card driver and any thing you installed for it. Now boot up and see if the system will crash.

Not much info on your sound card so can't help you on that, just buy a new one plus a new speaker. You will be please. Check this out. - SABRENT SBT-SP6C 5.1 Channels PCI Interface Sound Card - Retail - Logitech X-230 32 watts RMS 2.1 Black Speaker System - OEM
