Default Re: Goodbye HDD

Old is still the best, I still have my original HDD from when I got my PC about 5-6 years ago and its still going strong, I don't play many games or use anything that takes allot of memory and graphics so its not getting hammered, its a Excelstor Technology 40gb ATA.

Compaq Presario CQ5305K-m Intel® Pentium® Dual Core E5300 (2.6 GHz), Windows® 7 Home Premium 64 bit, 2048 MB , Hard drive: 320 Gb, with 18.5 Widescreen

Me too!! Yeah, it was pretty cool.

Anyway, I hate when hard drives die. Such a pain...good luck with the new one though.

I've never had any problems with any of my personal hard drives (the one's I use daily and store my stuff on). I have had plenty of old problematic hard drives that would have been used for PCs for sale had they not died. I haven't had much luck with Maxtor HDDs. I think only one Maxtor I've ever owned is still working... One of them makes a weird beeping (best way to explain it) that you could probably add as a beat to a song, lol.

I got a 40GB HDD (Seagate) right now that's got several thousand errors in the first 3% of scanning it... I didn't bother to carry it on any further as it had been scanning for several hours to get to 3%. I had another 40GB (Western Digital) with several hundred errors in all, I'm pretty sure I fixed them all though, and I am happy because I paid $20 for that drive...
