a recently bought a new computer from dell not to long ago and everything seemed to work fine until earlier today. my computer black screened out of nowhere and rebooted itself. ever since then my pc has been really slow and on the taskbar i get a message that says "a volume initializtion is in progress". im going straight from windows xp to windows 7 and i have no idea what is going on. my computer seems to be loading stuff really slow, which includes the start up as well. i let it go for about an hour now and it is still doing this. my question is what should i do about this? and frankly im a little worried =P
I assume you mean you have no experience with Vista. Contact Dell since the drive is doing an initial setup. Unless you have changed the drive you shouldn't be seeing that now. I suspect they will send you to Microsoft and the drive manufacturer.
