Is my hard drive failing?
    #3328045 - 11/06/04 05:39 PM (12 years, 6 months ago)

The past few days my computer would reboot for no reason, sometimes just after getting into windows, but mostly when i have a few things going. So, I decided to format it and start over. Everything was going fine untill it first gets into windows during the setup, to configure a user name and whatever. Once it gets into that part of the installation it takes 1-5 seconds and it reboots just like before i formated it.

So, I put my cpu and all that back to stock speed and it still happened. Then I tried switching power supplys and it did the same thing.

I'm starting to think my hard drive is failing. Anyone have an idea???

That would be a last resort. Anyone else have some ideas?

I think your problem is your power supply. Use a multimeter to check it's output.

I tried different power supplys and it did the same thing. I'm installing W2K on a new hard drive right now, hopefully it works.

Put a new hard drive in and everything works fine.
