My PC had been crashing for a long time, usually (understandably, so I thought) when I had lots of progs open or had generally been expecting a lot from the machine. My hardware is mostly fairly recent (SATA mother board, AMD duo 4GB ram), apart from some of the internal HDs (Knocking on for ten years old). The crashing was a loud grinding/buzzing noise followed by blue screen. I got around to formatting the C: and righted a lot of problems, eventually got all my software re-loaded etc, then the problem camr back, not as bad but annoying. Same noise, but PC seems to come back from the brink of a blue screen then continue from where it left off. As I type, I'm thinking: 'I bet I need a new C drive.... Any ideas?
It doesn't actually get to the bluescreen since I formatted it. I can't remember what number it used to be.... Thanks a lot for both replies, I now have the inner strenghth required to go buy another one! lol
