I have a dell laptop (Inspiron 1550 "i think"...not at home right now so cannot look at the model number, will add this later when I get home.)
The computer keeps randomly freezing when I boot normally. It will freeze within the first few minutes of the OS loading. I was able to boot into safe mode yesterday various times and it wouldnt freeze at all but then as the night progressed it would continually hang at crcdisk.sys.
I am thinking that this may be a hard drive that is failing but am not quite sure.
I also thought that it may be a driver issue because it was freezing only when it was running normally and not in safe mode but now it wont even boot into safe mode without freezing at the crcdisk.sys.
Another thing it is doing its running chkdsk almost every time it boots. I dont see any errors when it does run chkdsk so..??
