Help plz... my HP pavilion first started making a wierd buzzing noise after i tried doing disk clean that failed in the middle. When i came back to my computer, it had a black screen, and then started making the buzzing noise after i restarted it. Then when that persisted, i backed up my files on an external hard drive and wiped out the hard drive in the pc. then i tried reinstalling windows vista and it failed in the middle of that, froze up and the monitor looked like it was freaking out by going to a blue fuzzy screen and going black again. now screen keeps going into power saving mode and i need help plz.

I have a Gforce 7950gt graphics card, 2 gigs of ram, intel core 2 duo 2.6GHZ, windows vista 32bit , had it for about 2 1/2 years, with trend micro anti virus ... but im positive this is not a virus.

Could be your hard drive is failing, how old is the machine?

Try another Install of Vista but make sure to format the partition first.

It's around 2 1/2 years old , and i wiped out the partition and tried re-installing vista 32bit, and it freezes up in the middle of the re-installing. ... and how do i format te partition?

It should give you an option to format the partition at the begining of the install procedure.

I am now just waiting to see if the installation is successful. How long should this take?
