comment Windows 8 Pro clean install - everything slow; hard drive at constantly at 100%
I don't know if that dries without residue... the kind of alcohol you use on cuts is better... and DON'T press on the laser... NO pressure or you'll knock it out of alignment! And don't use very much alcohol and make sure it's completely evaporated before you use the drive... BE GENTLE! And try not to leave any cotton bits from the qtip on it... and don't let what I'm saying freak you out... it's not really that hard or dangerous as long as you're somewhat careful and it WILL move a bit and a bit is ok lol

comment All my files have been replaced by a found.000 “empty folder”. How can I recover my data?
brand new drives have been known to fail straight out of the box... they don't have to fall either... small electrical surges or brown outs can mess them up, but it is unlikely which is why I suggest uninstalling it or trying it in another computer... it could be your usb port or even a registry glitch... also try a different usb cord... if you don't feel like using the warranty you can also take it out of the enclosure and stick it directly into the computer to rule out any problems with the enclosure circuitry... to uninstall it rightclick safely remove and go to properties for the usb part

if none of this fixes it, I would recommend re-downloading windows 8, re-burning the disk, clean the dvd drive (rubbing alcohol gently on the laser with a qtip... if it's real dirty a cleaning disk won't do jack), run scandisk so it can mark bad sectors bad, then reinstall windows with a 'quick format' so it doesn't unmark the bad sectors... you could try running a defrag cause sometimes new installs are messy, but probably not the issue.

Yes systems are specific (at least I'm pretty sure 32 bit systems can't run 64bit OS, but at least some 64bit cpus can have a 32bit OS installed with no problems), but if yours came with 64bit, then you should be fine installing 64bit onto it. Windows itself can't always get the right drivers for laptops though... especially if you check device manager and there is anything wrong there... but windows won't usually download and install chipset drivers and a few other laptop drivers because those are specific to specific brands of laptops... you HAVE to go to the Dell site and get drivers...

comment Virus or hardware failure?
I'll check out the article... hopefully that will help me with my hunt... I'm not sure why updating the drivers would make a difference when it worked fine for 2 years with that driver and nothing was changed (plus a separate usb sound card does the same thing)
