Got a good response with my gfx card issue the other night, just wondering if you can help me with a problem I have with a HDD.
It's a 750GB seagate barracuda and came with the HP desktop I have. The performance of the drive is naff, but checkdisk and seagates own disk checking software found nothing wrong with it.
It's OEM so I can't send it back. I've installed the latest drive firmware on it (many people had problems with this drive).
Anyway the problem I get is that the drive is constantly spinning the HDD light on the computer is always active. I tried to install win 7 on it and I gave up after 90 mins.
When I 1st got the computer vista would take ages to do anything, from accessing files it would refuse to load system recovery. Start up and shutdown both took in excess of 5 mins.
I replacd it with 2 500gb WD, however I could do with it as an external drive.
Anyone offer any help/advice as to what the problem may be.
I've had no such problems since I swapped the drives
