Hard drive problem? or cable problem?
My problems are continuing and im not sure if my HD is bad or it might be a IDE cable. I have to HDs a 20 gig WD about 5 years old running my OS, and a 120 maxtor drive. recently i have been getting some blue screen errors, not many, but the bad thing is it sounds like my HD is turning off. And what happens is everything freezes, on boot up and goes to check the drives and it freezes there. after a few restarts all is normal. it got really bad the other day so i replaced the IDE cable and i was able boot up but the problem is still happening....it usually happens when im playing a game or the computer is on for a while...should i replace the old drive or is it a cable problem? thanks
