Well....I was happily playing Civ3 and Hunter's computer freezes then craps on itself....

The blue screen pops up and starts screaming about a kernel_inpage_error with a few hexadecimal memory addresses thrown in to make it completely unintelligeble. Well....after a quick refresher I am pretty sure that his HDD is in its death throws, which is not a big deal considering its an HP POS 2000. Ah well, looks like he'll have to replace the harddrive here shortly....unless anyone knows something I don't?

turn off the paging file, defrag twice, run checkdisk.

also, were any new drivers installed recently?

Run dmesg -a and post the output.
