Default Harddisk Problem...

i've had this problem for about 2 months now and i can't figure out what's the problem. first i had two HD of 80 GB and suddenly problems started to appear, sometimes they are detected in CMOS and sometimes they're not, i thought at first that the HD are dying so i ran some HD tools and found out that indeed my HD are in bad shape. so i bought a new Sata 80 GB HD and my problems disappeared.

but a week ago i bought an ATA/IDE 320GB HD and the same problems have appeared again! it's a new drive, so the problems aren't from the old drives. so i can't figure out what's the problem? is it the Mobo that's having problems detecting IDE devices?

once they are detected, after 5 minutes of working, XP freezes.

Please help me, Thanks.

I had a problem with a new Maxtor SATA/IDE 320Gb HDD, and it had to be returned to the shop, as it failed after a couple of days, after I had moved my music collection onto it!! There were no error messages as it failed to be detected. The quality now-a-days seems to be terrible.
Are there no other error messages, yellow exclamation marks in Device Manager? What do you mean by "bad shape"??

by bad shape i mean that they weren't stable, i don't remember what program i've used but it said that i should backup because the HD aren't 100% healthy.

i've tried the new hard disk on another PC it worked fine.

and no there are no errors, and no yellow exclamation marks too.
