Ouch! Well, thanks. Not such good news.

You might be having a hard drive failure problem, I had that problem.

Download a live version of Linux, install CHIRP and run from RAM.

You have to use a live CD.  Many are available.

BURN DVD and install CHIRP. If it works, get ready for computer replacement.

 It started OK and I was able to access the UV-82, but when I  made a couple changes and uploaded the file to the radio, it stopped in the middle and everything locked up.  The Dell locked up. I restarted it, and CHIRP wouldn't run. Uninstalled and then downloaded again and installed. Still will not run.; Getting frustrated.

It worked fine on my old machine in Linux. Running Win 7 now, regrettably., (on the Dell.) 
Old machine has problems, but I may have to resurrect  it. I hate Windows! 

The UV-82 did something weird ..... used it to check into a new last week, and somehow that freq. offest changed ..... now looking at the repeater input frequency, so it is backwards. Aaaaaargh!
