    Recently one of my computers has started to start up at unusually slow speeds. When I finaly manage to get to the desktop, it does not even reach the point where I see the shortcuts. Instead, what happens is that a window pops up saying I have error 0x8004045d. I have been able to access the computer through safe mode and the files through the network. Also, when the setup menu/area/whatever is used and I try to fix things the computers says that it can not find any hard drives, which is confusing to me, as it does have a hard drive. I'm using the Home version fo XP, if that helps.
    Any help at all in this matter would be greatly appreciated.

    That sounds like a dead or dying hard drive. I would back up everything you can in safe mode and replace the drive before it goes all together.
