Thanks, Chas. That gives me a starting ground for this weekend which will be the next time we probably attempt to work on the drive again. The computer has a few upgrades. Basic specs overall though and it actually does have a 450 Watt Power Supply in it since I checked.
Specs are pretty close as follows:
Abit IS7 motherboard
2x256 (512 megs of RAM) Kingston ValueRAM PC-3200 DDR
ATI Radeon 9200SE 128 megabyte video card
1 NEC ND2500A
1 Lite-On CD-Burner of some variety
2 EIDE Hard drives - both Seagates, not sure of their sizes anymore.
1 160 gigabyte Seagate SATA hard drive
And the computer does have a Kworld tv capture card installed. It's using the on-board sound card and the on-board LAN card so no extras there. That's about it as far as the computer goes. It's not that old - maybe 8 months or so.
Could Intel Application Accelerator drivers cause this type of problem if they are present? I think they support the IS7 motherboards, I know they didn't support my AI7.
