It is started when my 7+ years Fujitsu E8420P notebook, running Windows Vista Business, crashes frequently. The windows just freezes, inactive mouse, and no apps response. I noticed the culprit is the browser, seems it is Firefox since I used it as default browser. Sometimes Firefox was the only apps running and notebook still crashed. Every time the crash happened, I have to press the notebook power button for couple of secs ( 5 - 7 secs) until it is really powered off. Next time it is rebooted, just hope (or exactly prayed) that it will go back to normal. Sometimes, needs to restart in Safe Mode.
By that time, I already thought to buy external hard disk to back up personal data.
I did partition the hard disk into C and D, where D drive stores data only.
But misfortunes came uninvited ...
Recently it is getting more frequent.
No way to survive with old same method.
It is stalled, frozen, go back and forth Safe mode.
Even it goes to Repair and Diagnostic mode, built-in feature by Fujitsu.
Still no hope, seems boot sector / startup sector in hard disk really damaged, beyond repair.
Procrastinate ... delaying to buy this important device though I was browsing some local / online shops recently to find good bargain.
If anything can go wrong, it will.
At the end 21.07 my system really gave up, refused to start Windows at all.
