I was using my computer this morning and I heard one of my hard drives making this gas releasing sound and then a powering down sound. However, it didn't affect anything so I just moved on. Just before I was watching a video and the video was messing up but I'm thinking thats just a bad download. After I closed the video, I went to search on forums to see if anyone else had a bad download like that but then I decided to reboot the computer since my internet connection was running a little sluggish.
Before rebooting. It had that windows update thing on the shutdown but I chose to reboot.
So now I'm just wondering if my HD was failing or did I fuck up on the windows update thing?
I'm installing ubuntu now so I can maybe have a chance at recovering my files incase I have to send back the HD.
