HELLO,I am running an XP medion PC,After using for 5 mins it starts grumbling away and becomes unresponsive, This happens on Firefox, My computer,IE, Media player, Only Outlook express seem to work Ok,
Other symptons are, Arrow controlled by mouse will not turn to hand when moved over links etc,
windows open up saying, ( Program not responding ) " " " " ( Unresponsive Script )
After 20 mins the grumbling noise is constant and everything becomes so slow its impossible to use anymore,
As far as I'm aware a SATA 300 drive will work with SATA 150 so any SATA drive should be fine to install, some drives have a jumper that you have to set to allow 150 use over 300 some do it automatically.
Here's a link to fitting a SATA hard drive (click here) there's also a link to fitting an IDE drive at the bottom of the page.
