Several computer problem?

by siyano / May 18, 2017 5:17 AM PDT

Hello, I have some weird slow down and freeze, sometimes I can hear a "Beep" and some kind of drive speed up suddenly (and most of the times followed by a computer freeze of couple of seconds), and sometimes its just speed up (for no reason).
Recently I formatted my hard drive and installed windows 10, and I feel like some file just basically disappear, some feature doesn't work
- can't paste text (using kb shortcut or mouse submenu
- can't seem to install some program (windows installer bug)
- some dll file just either not works anymore or disappear
Some is my hard drive (or anything else) broken? My hunch is that my primary hard drive is dying (quite old, almost 10 years old)
and maybe mix with so kind of viruses that breaks dll?

A few issues.

Yes it could be hardware but given what you wrote, Windows might be installed but you wrote nothing about the post Windows install work. Drivers, etc.

There are crack versions of the OS that do what you listed so for that the fix is to get a real version.

Beyond that, you need to tell more. The copy/paste issue is not caused by the HDD. It's likely a cracked app or OS issue. Tell all so folk can help.

what kind of info you need?
I barely have anything installed, I havent done much around drivers beside my gfx card, most of the rest has been done automatically by windows (like sound or screen, which don't need much else)
I am more asking for the freeze problem than the file disappearing, maybe I have a bug with the pirated os

So the OS is pirated. We know that those versions

In reply to: hmm?

Have very strange issues that are only solved by getting the real deal or installing another OS like Linux.

Looks like case closed!

what about the hardware issues? I don't think it has anything to do with the whatever OS I have (I had those issues before with a window 7 OEM installation)

Let's go with it worked with W7. Use that. Go with what works.

-> As to what you think, I deal with hundreds of PCs a year and a lot of what you noted were Pirate Crack OS issues. You can think what you want here.

You don't install speccy, just download and run it.

Were you having all these problems before the install of w10?

A cracked OS means that no one can really help and be sure that it's the machine or the OS.

That's why my first step on such machines is to get a good OS in there. After that I consider repairing the PC.
