Computer Problems (Hard Drive Fault)
    #3508674 - 12/16/04 02:38 PM (13 years, 6 months ago)

I recently bought a new hard drive off Ebay because my other one was really screwing up, I recive the hard drive, worked fine, then i installed windows xp, and now the harddrive switches off randomly for no apparent reason. Also it can take upto ten minutes for it to decide to boot up, other than that i'm left with a blank screen. Normally i would put it down to the hard drive but i dont know if theres more to it than that, because this is exacially the same problem i had with my last hard drive, Maybe i have a problem with my proccessor or motherboard? Maybe my RAM's screwed? any help would be much much appricated, now i think of it, it may well be my RAM. :confused:

But i did run into this problem before, My previous hard drive did the exact same thing, which is the reason i bought this one. Is there anyway to see if this hard drive has any bad sectors or errors, or otherwise faulty?

You may want to consider the IDE cable being at fault, if your last drive was shittin out as well as this one. Also make sure the drive jumper is set on 'CS', cable select.

Windows Xpee is a bug within itself, I won't use it.
