Input/output error yet again
So I posted about it here a few months ago, here I am again.
My issue is: my computer can for a few weeks or 1 month+ run fine, then all of sudden everything starts freezing, FireFox hangs every 5 minutes, opening any program takes ages if it opens at all, turning the PC on/off takes longer than usual. I also sometimes get this input/output error either at startup, or when trying to run some programs like BitTorrent, etc. That, or "disk read error" at startup. So something like this lasts for a few days, then it's back to normal.
So it kind of baffles me, because if my HDD was busted or if I had a virus or something then wouldn't it be acting up ALL the time, not once every few weeks? It's really starting to piss me off >_>
