Angry Maxtor 60GB HDD

I have a Maxtor 60GB HDD and sadly, it just recently crashed on me. I had around 30GB of music, a few applications, and a few games. This is the second time it crashed on me. I can't tell if it's the HDD's problem or if Microsoft WinXP caused the crash.

Ricer: from the latin word Ricarius meaning to suck at everything you attempt.

What had happened that day was my computer was running for two days and I shut down for the evening. The next day I loaded it up and I heard weird noises that my G drive was making. Then it just went downhill from there.

The computer I'm talking about is my old computer:
HP Pavilion 510C
