    Hmm, you see- that's where we two are very different: I'd have bought another Hard Drive :D the purpose sanctifies the means after all...

    Well, if the same had happened to me, I would have just quit. It's taken me several years to gather all the models on my HD.

    Get a newer highpowered cooling unit. I have a nice one but I have no clue what the name is. It's nice cuz I can leave my computer on for 5 days and not worry about anything overheating.

    hmmmmm my suggestion go to the computer talk section they will help you...cuz they helped me a lot with my video card problems.
