What is happening when the Hard Drive, light, is flashing, nothing on the screen. Task manager dosent show anything working, only the number for the CPU shows (around) 2-40% activity??
Don’t know if its relevant. Last few months we have had ,a few (different) times when on webpages (any), the computer stops responding. After closing all the pages (or some times restarting the PC) its fine???
Just realised that AVG is scanning, it dosent say its scanning, unless you look hard at the icon, in the task bar. On the other hand, this activity happens at anytime???
It slows or stops the PC reacting, internet pages take a few minutes to come up, task-bar wont even show up at these times, have to push the power button to try again, although the process will show up again and again.
the HDD is NOW working (churning away for about 6 hours!!!)
