    Hi, I'm new here (meaning I just made an account but have been lurking around every time I had computer trouble. This time however, I couldn't find anything that resembles the trouble I'm currently experiencing) and I'm hoping if anyone can help me or tell me if I should just throw my laptop against the wall.

    I've had my printer (details and TSG SysInfo below) for over a year now, and never had any trouble with it. A few days ago, I needed to print something but wasn't able to (I can't remember what the error said, it didn't happen again) so I uninstalled the printer and re-installed it by downloading the drivers from the HP website. Pop-up balloon said that it wasn't successfully installed and when I would try to install the driver by going to print management and click on Printers I would get: "An error has occurred on the script of this page. Line: 40. Char: 21. Error: Object doesn't support property or method 'SetPrinterName'. Code: 0. URL: res://C:\Windows\system32\pmcsnap.dll/81". So I clicked on Drivers instead and tried to install the driver there and it said: windows found driver software for your device but encountered an error.

    Do understand that I have no idea what I'm doing whenever my computer doesn't behave as it is supposed to, and everything is done by trial and error; mostly error. For some reason I felt the need to do a chkdsk /f /r which was scheduled on the next restart, but upon restart my computer refused to do it because a recently installed software prevented it to do so (again, I don't remember the exact error it showed since it all went so fast) and advised me to System Restore. When I wanted to do a System Restore I was told to chkdsk first. [They're just like my parents when I was a kid. Dad: Go ask your mom. Mom: Go ask your dad.] So I was stuck again, and didn't know what to do.

    I uninstalled the printer again, and tried to do the chkdsk again. This time, it did do the chkdsk but the whole screen was filled with "File record segment xxxx unreadable". At part 5/5 it gave up and said "An unspecified error occurred", after that it would reboot and I got into a bootloop of chkdsk ending with "An unspecified error occurred" every single time.

    Can anybody tell me what is happening? :confused:

    Hi! Thanks for replying! That's what I'm afraid of. Is there any way I could check if it is indeed the hard drive? Oh, it's a MSI U230 Light, I forgot to include that. :)
