I have a Toshiba Laptop that has recently begun acting really slow with minimal CPU usage. I though that it may have been a virus or spy ware problem, but after thorough scans nothing was found. The hard drive light stays on a lot and I have received the blue screen a couple of times. I decided to run scan disk but on step four of the process it only gets so far and then locks up. I can get back into Windows after it takes a VERY LONG TIME to load and usually takes longer to run programs. All of this leads be to believe that the hard drive is bad. Do you all agree? If so, what can I do to fix it without loosing the information stored on it? Thanks!
