hard drive failure imminent?
Posted on 2004-09-23
I have windows xp pro running sp2
radeon x800 pro gc
I have recently started getting strange problems.
after some time of the computer being on, I'll try and copy and paste, or just drag and drop something drom the desktop say , to the D: drive and i will get an error message saying that c:/desktop.......... does not exist and if i'm on a network to make sure i have access etc.
sometimes if i try and play a .mov file through quicktime, quicktime will say it was unable to download the software to play the file, where it was playing it perfectly five minutes before hand.
on other occasions my setup for my broardband has disappeared.
I have norton internet security running and have done a full system scan, without and problems found.
sometimes windows suddenly fails to see that there is anything on the D: drive
now i get an insufficient system resources error message just dragging a .jpg to the recycle bin!
HD failure on its way, or sp2 ?
