I would reformat the drive using the "write zeros" option and reinstall the system from the original system installation disk. Just start clean. The reformat will map out any bad blocks that may have developed. If you give us the last three figures of your serial number I can tell you the exact system your machine shipped with and what it can be upgraded to. Also please tell us how much RAM you have and what kind it is to make sure it is the correct type.
