I have a hp pavillion ze5385us hard drive making all kinds weird sounds with stop:0x0000008E and vertical lines in center of screen besides a new hard drive can this be fixed andis this worth fixing?


Answers :

You may have two problems. The hard drive can cause vertical lines in the picture sometimes when it affects the video output, but the lines could also be caused by a defective monitor. The call to make the repairs are up to you. The hard drives and monitors can be found, new and used, on ebay.
You may have two problems, or just one.

\015\012The disk-drive is "failing" -- if it is "misreading" the "wallpaper" picture, then the viewed wallpaper will look to be "corrupted".
\015\012
\015\012Backup all your files, to DVD-writable or USB memory-sticks,
\015\012before the disk-drive completely "dies".
\015\012
\015\012Given that you have a "Athlon 64 3800+", it's worth replacing the disk-drive, reinstalling Windows, and restoring your files from your backup.
\015\012Much cheaper to replace the disk-drive than to buy a new computer.
