Does this mean my HD is gonna die?

15 posts in this topic

Lately I've been getting lot's of messages saying "This file is corrupted run chkdsk." Chkdsk finds the errors but doen't fix them. So am I screwed and in need of a new drive?

have you tried defragmenting or reformating? that could fix it. usually when a drive is about to die it makes weird noises.

Every once in a while my HD sounds like a gear breaking on a transmission. Other times my whole computer smells funny, like its burning toast. I wonder if its time for a new computer?

LOL, I've got a fairly new 8 gig..the idiot who had it before decided that, rather than put in his tower the RIGHT way, he would drill holes in it so he could put it in the way he wanted. I don't think theres much more to say; you can use your imagination.

-=This bad HD experienced was brought to you by the Mr. Hotplug AGP and drill holes in HD man! Now getting M$ Certified so Microsoft will allow him to fuck up OTHER PEOPLES computers!=-

Before windows completly crashed on my a week ago I think, when I booted it would sound like a chainsaw till it booted everything. I tryed to rush it one day to get online and it went psycho on me. Was buzzing and humming and beeping till i crashed it...o well its fine now.

ERROR!
