One more thing, its Hard Drive C, you might laugh at the question but what is the hard drive c? i mean what hardware is it? im pretty sure its just that box of memory in the PC but im not sure. and could it possibly be fried? because i just installed Age of Empires III(a game) on Friday, its Sunday, and the problem happened Saturday night almost most definitely, and im thinking that even though my specs were suitable for the game, maybe the game just finally fried whatever the Hard Drive. I have had the PC for like 5 years and were taking it in tomorrow so im hoping you guys could tell me some cheap solutions to the problem, if i have to replace hardwar... Thx again.
