No I don't mean it like it "breaks" as in you drop a vase, it shatters. Think of it as something that wears out over a certain period of time. I used up too much memory for it run correctly and now it simply wont work.

Anything with moving parts has a tendancy to wear out over a period of time.

This includes computer parts.:happysad:

You think you got it rough, I had to replace the hard drive in my laptop 3 times:mad: The first one lasted a year, the 2nd about 2 months, and the 3rd started overheating when I was loading the OS.

If I get you write, you're telling us not that your hard drive FAILED but that you've filled it and now it's running VERY slow.

Try defragging it. Fragmentation can suck up a TON of room on your drive and it makes your drive work way freaking harder than it needs too.
