hurray... our computer won't boot windows anymore again. but it gives different errors this time! weee

"data error reading drive c"
this is a one week-old hard drive, folks.

and it ran fine (except solitaire) for that week, until today. Was running, restarted it, won't boot.

when you turn it on now it stops at the win98 startup menu and says there's a registry/configuration error, start at command prompt and run scanreg.
so we did that, and it always freezes before doing anything.

I talked to one friend who's in IT and he doesn't suspect faulty hardware at all, just doens't think windows is installing right.
which is weird because I've done it the same way plenty of times with no problems. In fact this same computer installed windows and ran for like 2 months fine until that power supply failure
