So I was browsing this website the other day on the pop-in-laws Win 7 desktop. For some reason the scroll bar would want to go all the way down to the bottom and the moment I let off the left mouse click it would jet right back to the bottom of the bar again and stay there.
I restarted the computer and after a few minutes it started doing that same shit again. So I closed out firefox and went to start up some Old Republic. When I tried to click the TOR icon on my desktop it clicked something that was down and to the left of the icon, not where the cursor actually was.
As I couldn't get it's click location under control I had to power down the PC using the power button. Upon firing up the PC later it won't boot windows. It would get so far and then just not do anything. (it would get to the windows loading screen with windows 7 logo at the bottom and just never go any farther).
So I made a repair/boot disc on my wifes Win 7 laptop and booted from it. I got into the windows repair utility using the disc and it'll get to the process where it says it's searching for windows 7 installations (it lists the primary one) but it keeps searching and searching and never stops. As a result I am unable to click the instance of windows 7 that is listed and repair it.
Any idea WTF this stupid Acer desktop is doing this time? And what exactly are my options at this point? I've tried booting in safe mode, etc but it always goes straight to the windows repair function and it does that endless searching thing every single time. (let it run for 7 hours last night while I slept and it was still searching this morning when I got up).
