IBM GXP 80Gb Hard Drive problem

  Squeals 15:09 21 Mar 2003

I installed a slave drive in my HP Pavillion PC (Win98) some 6 months ago (after some very helpful advice from forum "listeners" - thanks again!).

In the past month I have started to experience an intermittent fault - on standby mode the drive whirrs loudly every four or five seconds and the system refuses to come out of standby. I have to reboot the machine. I use Norton Utilities which on reboot tells me I have an invalid boot record on the slave drive but to only repair it if I am experiencing difficulties using the drive (which I'm not, so I don't).

Anyone have any suggestions to this long-winded thread!?

Wait for conformation on this, but Norton is correct in the fact, "You do have a problem" and it wants to fix it.
