  1. Hard drive stops short time after booting into windows but works fine on Ubuntu


    Specs:
    Dell 15r 7520 SE Laptop
    Intel i5 3210M @2.5 GHz

    8GB SODIMM DDR3 @ 1600MHz
    Intel HD 4000 Graphics / AMD Radeon 7730M discrete GPU

    A short time after Windows is loaded in, the drive light comes off, the display freezes, and the computer requires a restart to work again. I've ruled out a drive problem as the drive has been replaced and Ubuntu has been installed without a hitch, confirming this, I tried to load windows on after deleting Ubuntu. Didn't work. Currently running PC on ubuntu and the issue hasn't showed itself.

    :)

    Windows Installation is only Successful for Short time

    I have a PC which is about 5 years old and came with Win 7 but I upgraded it to Win 10 about 6 months ago. The PC operated fine under Win 10 until about 2 weeks ago. All of a sudden Win would not boot properly and kept in a loop about automatic repair.
    I ran a system test it said that there was a hard drive error and since the hard drive was old I bought a new hard drive. I reinstalled Win 10 on the new hard drive and the system operated fine for a short period of time (it appears that the system will
    operate fine until I reboot). To make a long story short I have formatted the new hard drive several times and reinstalled Win 10 always with the same results - operates for a short time and then stops working.

    The strange part is that I installed Ubuntu on the same PC and it works fine. I even installed Win 10 and Ubuntu as a dual boot and Ubuntu worked fine but Win 10 stopped working on the second or third boot.

    Does anyone have any ideas how I can get Win 10 to operate properly?

    Laptop has to be "warm" to boot to windows but fine with Ubuntu

    Hi everybody,

    I try to cut to the chase. My Vaio machine has this issue for the last couple of years! and keep geeting worse that windows (7,8,10) restarts, shuts down or freezes randomly at boot, startup or in the middle of something. Sometimes with the slightest move
    or touching the monitor.

    I have tried the thing below:

    • Cleaning the fans
    • Updating to the latest driver updates
    • Updating BIOS
    • Fresh installation of Win 7,8,8.1,10 MANY times
    • Installed Ubuntu (working just fine but it's linux)
    • Changed the HDD
    • Tested the RAM and changed
    • Tested with different chargers and batteries
    Until recently when I was fed up with Ubuntu and its lack of software, I installed Windows after many tries and learned the windows only boot if the laptop is physically "warm"!

    But Ubuntu just works fine if the machine is cold!

    For now I have to leave the laptop is BIOS for like 10 min until the fans go crazy and then I know it would boot to Win!!

    What's your guess or recommendation to try?

    I appreciate your time for reading and helping me, in advance.

    Hard drive stops short time after booting into windows but works fine on Ubuntu

    dual boot xp and ubuntu

    I had that problem a few months ago, but dual-booting is really easy. I am currently dual-booting Vista and Ubuntu 8.04 Hardy Heron. Use this website here for a guide to dual-booting XP and Ubuntu: APC's March issue is on sale now! | TechRadar (I actually did not use this guide at all, but I did pretty much the same thing!)

    If you are unable to get your boot working with this guide, reply to this message, and I will write out a step-by-step guide, but it will involve you already having a partition set out for XP (as in you are not already using your entire hard drive space for XP alone.) Even though I write the guide with experience from Vista, it will work with XP
