Thank you for moving the thread and i apoligize for not looking more thoroughly for the correct forum to post in. In the future I will be more careful. :iagree:
I did update my MB drivers before I formated and once I did I re-instaled the utility that checks for MB updates and it found nothing. I assume that the drivers are still current. Is there a good sourse for current SATA drivers other than my MB manufacture?
Something strange I've noticed is that since I installed Nero, the drive seems a little more stable. I managed to transfer my MP3s and only had a couple of lockups. :rolleyes:
I also tried the afore mentioned method of changing the PNG file name but the forum attachments system said it was an invalid format. It's late this evening and I'll try it again tommorow. I also picked up some verbatium DVD-Rs. My problem remains however since my backups are on the TDK DVD-R disc and my work requires the data on them. I guess if I don't mind having to reboot my computer after a few folders then I can eventually get everything I need copied over to my HD. I am thinking that the problem might be the TDK media although I find it odd that the TDK are not a quality media since their other media has always worked well for me in the past.
That reminds me... :eek:
My computer started doing this weird thing since I formated. It suddenly turns itself off. No warning and no que. A forum I read suggested that it might be a bad CPU fan, that some systems come to a screeching halt when the fan stops. I have since ordered a new one and expect in the next few days. Even if that is not the issue I am certain I need a new CPU fan as the one I have currently, has started this high pitched whinning sound when I boot up and during computer usage as well as my CPU temp seems a bit high. Do any of you have any thoughts as to what else might cause this?
Thank you everyone for your attention and help with this matter. I really appreciate being a part of a forum that has this level of enthusiasm. I hope that I can repay this community one day with knowledge that I may pickup or with advise that was won.
