Computer update . . .

Well, it’s not my cooling fans.  It’s not the CPU or the RAM.  My techie and I were able to sort all that out in under a half hour at his shop Monday night.  He sent me home with 2 programs to do deep in-depth analysis of the hard drives.

So, I popped in the disc of the first program, and selected the boot partition of the main drive – that took about 4 hours to analyze.  Then I started the non-boot partition on the same drive – over 18 hours was the *estimate*.

It didn’t quite take that long.  At about 15 hours, it kicked out a “Division Overflow Error” message and stopped the exam.  I restarted it, and 15 hours later got the same error message.  So, I restarted the program to examine the OTHER hard drive.

Wow – I thought 18 hours was mind-boggling.  The estimate on doing the same exam on my non-boot drive was 24 1/2 DAYS.  I’m going to call him in a little while (his office opens in about a half hour) and see if he knows of something that can handle this better.  It’s insane to tie up this computer on nothing but a hard drive analysis for almost a MONTH.  Sheesh!
