I'm not sure where to put this, but I need some help.
« on: September 04, 2012, 07:39:53 PM »
I tried to log on to computer today and it was way slower than usual. So I sat there and waited and when it finally turned on, nothing but a black screen, an error message, and the taskbar down at the bottom of the computer was there. It said something along the lines of "Windows could not connect to the windows service". I force-shut down the computer by holding the power button and all went well with the next start up. Was this anything I should be worried about? It also said something having to do with my hard-drive, but I have no idea. I ran a quick-scan and nothing was found, so I don't think it is malware. Any help?


Also, I apologize if this is in the wrong section, I wasn't sure where to put the thread.

hey it sounds like it could have been a glitch in the bios or something. But if your computer is running fine it should be no trouble.

I feel like it was a malfunction with my hard drive and I have no idea why.
