Re: hard disk big problem?
It seems to me like it could be down to bad RAM, more than a hard disk fault...
How many RAM dimms have you got in the slots? And of how many Megabytes?
For instance, you may have 2x 512mb to make 1GB.
If you have two, shut down the PC, take 1 out, and run it. Does it work better? If not, turn it off, put it back in, and take the other out. Does it work better now?
If it doesn't crash when one is out, its due to some bad RAM.
If you only have 1 RAM dimm, they'll be programs that'll be able to test it.
Abit IP35 Pro / Q6600 G0 / Zalman 9700 / 8800GTS 640mb / 4x 2GB Corsair XMS / X-FI Xtreme M / 1x 1TB / Antec 900 / Logitech Z-5500 / Samsung 20inch
