I think i have a problem with my hard drive, it is making a noise and everything stops, and also sometimes doesn't even load windows, what could it be.. the drive is damaged? or a bad sector? something is corrupt? or may be a virus? when it load windows it won't last more than 5 minutes to freeze or restart. i tried a software from maxtor POWERMAX, i did a boot disk but i don't know if i did something wrong but it did not start checking the disk. what do you guys think i should you before sending them the hard drive?
Thanks for any help.
