My Dell Inspiron 1420 laptop running Vista SP 1 has been running slow for about a week, except for a day when it was back to normal. I've gone through all the spyware cleans and they haven't solved the problem. I've been getting an error message in Google Chrome that says:
"The instruction at 0x5f070f5a referenced memory at 0x5f070f5a. The memory could not be written."
And the reason I'm asking the question in this forum is because yesterday my screen went black and would not respond so I shut it down using the power button. When I started it again it automatically went into Startup Repair. At the end of Startup Repair the report said:
Repair action: System files integrity check and repair.
Result: Failed. Error Code = 0x490
It's really frustrating because tasks that used to not tax my computer now send the CPU usage to 100%. I use my computer for work so I'm wasting a lot of time waiting for it to finish things it normally does quickly. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
