windows xp pro
last thing installed was animation shop transfered from another pc by mem stick
after the installation computer considerably slowed down
and now hours later it's inoperable
currently my computer will boot up, and as soon as i log into windows everything stalls, and i get the blue screen telling of registry error. Everytime i try to boot up my computer it gets slower and slower and stalls twice as fast. OH YEAH, computer has a clicking/knocking noise! It is completely inoperable past the windows log on screen. Should i assume the drive is mechanically fried, or could there be any way i could save my pc?
any advice is valuable?
i have no money for a new drive
