Maybe it was coincidence. Picked up a shirt and tossed it towards my computer chair. Just as it left my hand I felt a static charge. It missed the chair and hit my box with a nasty "pop". Computer turned off. I unplugged the power supply as it had tripped the breaker or whatever the thing is inside that protects from fires I think. Anyways, fired it back up and what do I see? BSOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! A corrupt registry file. So I now have one of the other hard drives running as the main boot drive with a fresh(old, not so paid for) copy of windoze xp pro. I'm slowing building my computer back to the way I remember it... Maybe with less crap than before though.
P.*. Scandisk can not fix the error. I ran the full monte on the scan disk and it got to phase 5 and failed.
