I'd say it is probabbly the hard drive, being one of the few mechanical parts

if it hasn't done so before, and it is in fact the hard drive, then it might be on its way out. although usually dying hard drives make more of a clicking noise.

i have two hard drives, one whcih has the windows xp itself and the other just for storage

do you think it is the first drive which contains the windows xp or the second one with the storage.

do you think it might be a fragmentation problem and if i just defrag my drive, it will be ok
