Thumbs down Another comp prob-its endless!!! I think its hard drive!

Well After fixing all the probs in my previous posts aand after installing xp pro and all neccasary drivers! I began to play Halo- it ran unbeleivabley well, anyway I thought i would take it down stairs and plug it into the better monitor, well I start the system up and it runs the disc check for no reason and theres loads of errors. anway it restarts and continuously runs disk check every time!!! So I cancel one of the disc checks coz it was gettin on my tits and it comes up with blue screen explaining that some new hardware or software has not installed properly, i canoot get into the operating system, so i decide its time to repair the install of xp by booting with xp disc, well as soon as i choose to repair i get the same error(blue screen as before). There is no way i can reformat the drive or get into the os, it wont work. Please help, is there anway of wiping the drive!!!!!!
Thanx in advance!

Er, are you sure the new moniter is fully compatible with your video card?

"Well if it's getting on yer tits, you must be doing something wrong"

Just kidding !!! Anyway's either yer hhd needs a good formatting or you probably have some bad sectors.

Avirus could have caused this too.

Yeah still the same problem, I'm thinking maybe its a broken drive, coz i managed to wipe it and reinstall xp (after many attempts) and got to installing norton antivirus and internet security then the error came up again. it seems the drive only works when it wants to. Has anybody ever had any trouble with maxtor hard drives. I might send it back!

Sounds a lot like the problems I had with my hard-drive.. I had a 60GB hard-drive... and had to take it back. Just take the dumb thing back and get a replacement. The production lines usually, 90% of the time put out working hard-drives... but sometimes defective ones squeeze through.

On my 60GB hard-drive, I kept getting blue screens and then "Disk I/O Errors".

Since I'm all about Maxtor... I notice that the drives work very well nearly all the times. But sometimes I get a bad drive that doesn't work at all.
