Re: windows lock up at start up
dropped in a new WD SATA 250 and it purrs like a kitten. this makes the 3rd WD 320 that has failed on me this year.....seeing a theme here i don't like. the first 320 lasted 4 days, (yes 4 days), the 2nd 320 lasted 3 months and the 3rd 320 lasted 4 months. i'm thinking i'll stay away from the WD SATA 320's.
they were all Western Digital WD3200AAJS Caviar Blue Hard Drive - 320GB, 7200rpm, 8MB, SATA-300.
