Hard Drive power? problems..
Ok, I've had an occasional problem for a month or so.. where the hard drive sounds like it powers down for a second and come back up... causing the computer to freeze. It happened today, and when I rebooted the computer it couldnt find the hard drive.. and it wouldnt stop powering down the drive.
I turned off the computer for about 20 seconds.. and it started acting up when I turned it on. After I left it off for a couple minutes it started acting fine.
The drive is a western digital 120gb eide.. about 2 years old. Their site isnt responding.. so I cant give a model number atm. Its been active nearly 24/7 for the life of the drive.
I'm trying to determine if this is a problem w/ the PSU or with the drive. I havent noticed power problems with anything else.. but my vid card occassionaly gets stuck in an infinite loop.
In any event.. I'm a little scatter brained right now. I'm sure I missed something, so feel free to ask.
