Hello, haven't posted in here for ages...

Last week my laptop wouldn't come out of standby, just a black screen.

I restarted it and windows started to load, got a pointer and the screen went black again.

I tried to re-format but it got stuck at about 52% (keeps doing this). However a quick format works. :confused:

It keeps doing it though, as soon as I've installed all the drivers (don't think it's driver related - done the same as always) and try to restart after a few hours I either get:

1. Black screen for desktop
2. Desktop that freezes after 5 secs, then goes black.
3. Bluescreen telling me something has ****** up.

Does anyone have any idea what could be wrong? Why does only a quick format work?

The laptop is out of warranty so was hoping someone might be able to offer some advice. Anything I should test?

I'm 99% sure if I turn it off now I'll have to re-format lol! :(

Really, really appreciate any help, ta!

Brilliant cheers, will try that. I thought they would be quite expensive to replace, so that's good news. Better start backing up the other partitions then...
