Hey all, I bought a new computer on august 29th 2003... since then the hard drive has had to be replaced 3 times (and I am fearing that it will have to be replaced again) its a WD Raptor 36.7 gb SATA drive... but it will work for a while, then it will just gradually fail until it doesn't work at all... what could be causing this... the odds of three bad drives in a row don't seem very good so what else could be causing these errors? It seems that bad sectors get written to the drive, then eventually the drive has too many bad sectors to even run the diagnostic test provided by western digital... luckaly the comp is under warranty so none of these have costed anything to replace, however, I can't really save important data becasue I fear that the drive will have to be replaced so its pointless... the drive will click from time to time, wind down and then wind up again. what software related problems could cause this? everything in the computer has been replaced at least once. and the company is the worst company in the world to deal with. and they keep telling me its a software problem... so what could be causing this?
