LOL. I appreciate that. My bro is my PC guy. He gets me all fixed up. I'm due for a new one. This old laptop I use at home is getting very old.

Every time I tried to post the PC would crash. Think we fixed it now. This is post 3 or 4 and it hasn't crashed. Before, I wouldn't even get through typing and sometimes it would crash.

Crashing when trying to do something as simple as posting on a forum is most likely a bad software issue or a weird hardware issue. Either way, I hope you got it sorted out.

It was both..... or one causing the other. Bad section of hard drive where Java sat. Uninstalled and reinstalled Java and things seem to be fine.

If you have a confirmed bad sector of the hard drive, best bet is to replace the hard drive. Failure is immanent. You can try a utility called Crystal Disk Info. It will tell you the status, hours, failures, etc of your disk. If you're getting errors or stats out of line, the drive WILL fail sooner rather than later. Better to replace while you can still recover info off your old drive than wait until it's too late.

I'm not sinking any money in this old wore out laptop. If it crashes, it crashes. I'll get another. I have all my important stuff stored online. I won't lose anything important.

Just a thought but you could invest in a more modern technology called SSD (solid state disk). It would greatly speed up your PC and when you replace it with a newer one, you could use the same SSD you bought to drop into a new PC. No $$$ lost there

We;ll build a new one, not buy. I've heard of those. I'm not the computer builder though.... but that guy. That guy went to Mac. Not that a Mac is a bad thing..... I just don't want to learn how to use a new operating system. I haven't used a Mac in 23 years.

Oh well.... No need to continue in this thread. Test is over. Still no issues, so I'd say we got it resolved. It may have just been a program err, but it was giving a kernal data err, doing a crash dump and wouldn't reboot unless you powered it down and turned it back on. So, this ol' laptop will probably not last much longer. I'll deal with it then.

Yep, no worries. Mac is now a very easy OS to learn and work with but if you want to continue talking PC's/Mac's, PM me

Cub Cadet is a premium line of outdoor power equipment, established in 1961 as part of International Harvester. During the 1960s, IH initiated an entirely new line of lawn and garden equipment aimed at the owners rural homes with large yards and private gardens. There were a wide variety of Cub Cadet branded and after-market attachments available; including mowers, blades, snow blowers, front loaders, plows, carts, etc. Cub Cadet advertising at that time harped on their thorough testing by "boys - acknowledged by many as the world's worst destructive force!". Cub Cadets became known for their dependability and rugged construction.

MTD Products, Inc. of Cleveland, Ohio purchased the Cub Cadet brand from International Harvester in 1981. Cub Cadet was held as a wholly owned subsidiary for many years following this acquisition, which allowed them to operate independently. Recently, MTD has taken a more aggressive role and integrated Cub Cadet into its other lines of power equipment.
