clickings got worse!!
drive clicking more often and for longer, constantly slowing down the computer every time it clicks, until i eventually get to the blue screen of death with a “disk/write error”.:a
It then freezes and when i restart, i get a “boot failure”.
i turn the computer off and when i turn it back on, it starts up in scandisk, but stops due to a “data error while reading the FAT on drive C:”:Z
I thought of doing a surface scan but i don’t think that it would ever finish!
Yeah my first IBM drive died 2 days after it started clicking =\ My 2nd IBM drive started clicking too, and I quickly backed up everything, but it still works, just freezes and clicks when I access certain files. I actually got as far as isolating that section of the drive that has problems with PartitionMagic, and now the drive works, just missing those ~500mb that’s screwed up. I can probably get more outta that 500mb, but I’m quite happy already, I just use the HD to do backup and scratch disk/temp files now.
how did you know which part of your drive was damaged?:
i think the damaged part of my hard drive is where windows is installed, lets’ just hope that my drive lasts longer than 2 days!:o
I found that spunking on the processor cooled it down a bit:eek:
