My 2007 Emachines T-series desktop with Windows Vista Home Premium AMD Athlon 64x2 Processor 4000 320GB Hard drive, original 1GB ram upped to 2GB May 2012, has died. I tried to log on 06-12-2013 and got Check Disk screen, it scanned and reported could not fix automatically. I tried again and start up repair keeps coming back up.saying computer unable to start. The scan showed 5 attempts; session details: System Disk=\Device\Harddisk0; Windows Directory=C:\ Windows; AutoChckRun=0; NumberRootCauses=1. After all the tests listed which were repeated 3 times total it said Root Cause Found. Boot Critical File C:\\Windows\System32\Drivers\kseeold.sys is corrupt. Used Staples to add the Ram and they told me I had a hard drive issue coming but I don't want to take it back to them. so question is repair or replace? Thanks.
