weird noise ...
OK, I just got back home, and when I came into the computer room, I heard a big whining noise. The HP is the loudest computer of the house, so I went to check it first, just putting my ear next to it. Yup, it's the HP alright .... Then, I launch Speedfan, and lower the fan level to 65%. Almost no difference (this is weird, cuz it always quieted down the comp otherwise). So, the problem was with the hard drive. And it isn't the usual whining, it's a lot louder, overpowering a Delta jet engine .... Anyone knows what's going on ?The only thing you should expect is the unexpected.

Drive is probably on it's way out. Back up now, RMA and feel OK about it later.

can't RMA, I didn't buy it (unfortunately ) Now this sucks, I just reinstalled XP on it, copied a couple of gigs of data on it (about 20 or more gigs), .... BOOOOOO Quantum You suck, I'm glad you went out of business. At least, Maxtor makes better products than you originally didThe only thing you should expect is the unexpected.
