Re: Hard Drive Problems
When you said it "failed"
Are you sure the drive failed physically or just failed to load windows?
I am just checking..
Alot of things can cause hard drives to fail.
Shock and vibration
RAM issues (yes, saw it once, bad memory killed a hard drive in 2 weeks)
And of course SPYWARE/VIRUS infested computers.
Having your hard drive being constantly put to work to read/write/seek chunks of random fragmented data will kill it.
It could be anything, trying to diagnose things over the web is very hard, but just food for thought.
