Aimee the Great Posted August 19, 2010 Share Posted August 19, 2010 System specs: Computer: FOXCONN MCP61M05CPU: AMD Athlon 64 X2 4200+ (Brisbane, BH-G2) 2200 MHz (11.00x200.0) @ 2210 MHz (11.00x200.9) Motherboard: FOXCONN M61PMV Chipset: nVidia nForce 6100-405/430 Memory: 4096 MBytes @ 315 MHz, 5.0-5-5-15 - 2048 MB PC5300 DDR2-SDRAM - Kingston 2G-UDIMM - 2048 MB PC5300 DDR2-SDRAM - Kingston 2G-UDIMM Graphics: XFX GeForce 8400 GS nVIDIA GeForce 8400 GS (G86), 512 MB DDR2 SDRAM Drive: WDC WD5000AAKS-22A7B0, 488.4 GB, Serial ATA 3Gb/s Drive: HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GH20NS15, DVD+R DL Sound: nVIDIA MCP61 - High Definition Audio Controller Network: NVIDIA nForce 10/100 Mbps Ethernet OS: Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premium Build 6002 OK, so a bit of background in case it helps: A few weeks ago, my computer got unplugged (I'm too poor to get a UPS ), and the hard drive developed a few bad sectors. One of those bad sectors ended up being right on a system file ... and you can guess what happened. I had to reinstall. Luckily, I did not lose any files (they were on a data partition). So the latest chkdsk/hard drive manufacturer diagnostic tool thingy came out just fine, but every time I try to install Paint.NET it would hang on me. First I would click through the options (e.g. desktop icon) and then it would hang during the actual installation and then turn grey, and then after a few minutes explorer.exe would start hanging and everything would get frozen up and I would have to hit the reset button. I downloaded the latest version in case it was due to a bad sector; no luck. Also, the second time I tried to install, it did this de-installation thing of the previous failed installation. But then it would hang again. Thanks for any help. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
