Yeah, I'm having pc problems like many here. At first I thought it was no biggy, because I thought that satanic noise was comming form my D drive. I was going to just let it die in peace. Sadly, just a few hours ago I found out it was my C drive. Now naturally this is a problem, because that's the master hard drive. I only had it for a year and I contacted Western Digital about it, they're willing to replace it so no problem there. The problem is that my mom is being such a fucking bitch she wouldn't let me give them the credit card number so they could ship the freaking hard drive to me right away, WITHOUT A CHARGE. So instead I have to fucking send them the hard drive, (gonna take 2 weeks to do that) and once they get it they'll send me my new hard drive (another 2 weeks). So I'm going to have to wait one full fucking month because of that fucking whore.

Bye.

EDIT: BTW, my dvd drive is fucked, my cdrw wont write, my floppy wont work at all, my other drive has 140mb of bad clusters. WEEE GIANT FUCKING EVIL PENIS MUST BE RAPING MY SYSTEM!!! AWAY WITH YOU, GIANT FUCKING PENIS!!! WATCH OUT !!! HE'LL GO AFTER YOUR PC TOO!!!

I have it on good authority (mine), that western digital drives are pieces of SHIT. we've replaced three in a ROW at my job, and we have many computers. Most of them use seagate drives now, eventually all the shitty WD drives were replaced. and those are nice, if not loud/slow.

now here comes the replys sayin 'MY WD DRIVE 0OWNZ j00' but, three in a row? come on. Each new one the company sent us (without charge thankfully) was defective after a month or so.

so if you had to chose between this IBM and this WD, you would take the IBM, Use3D? i'm just asking because when i build my new comp, one of those would be the primary HD. i have heard good things about WDs, but if you look at the specs and prices of the two, the IBM is clearly the better value.

Well I need to back up 6gb worth of shit. I can't use another hard drive, I can't use this drive because it will die, I can't use my cdrw because it's busted and I don't have anough cdrws anyway, I can't put it on floppies because the floppy is busted... and plus, that's just ridiculous and I only said it because the clicking made me. So... would anyone kindly give me their email address so I can send them a 6gb email? I promise I'll zip it.

EDIT: no, nope, the zip thing is broken, sorry.

dude that ibm is a nice drive. i too have a new computer being built in the 'shop' (my room), and that's a nice drive. hmmmm. nice drive. fast too. i've had the best luck with Maxtors, although i hear them getting called crap alot. i have 1 three year old maxtor and 1 year/half or so old maxtor, both doing very well. my new amd (which i on right now) has a 80gb maxtor, and it only a couple months old, but seems great. i partition all my large drives too, if anyone cares

I will too probaly. Maybe I'll try Linux or something, or at least win95. I have an extra 2gb hd also, I'm thinking off adding that to the new machine with dos 3.1 so i can play old games with their own exe's. We'll see how the audigy sound card reacts to dos :)

you better shut that computer down and wait until you can get a new drive in there or you might lose everything.

why would he spend all that money on a new comp, especially if he uses your advice and get's a dell, when he can maybe spend $200 getting a new hd and cd-rom?

His whole comp is fucked because the HD is not working. Just because you have a little trouble with a hardrive, which can be replaced for free in orion's case, doesn't mean he should run out and buy a whole new computer. That just makes no sense.

orian all that stuff bad? how old is the system. dude i am think a fuck power supply might be the cause. if not another and far more strange problem can be what i have delt with. electromagnetic interfernce will do that. and it depends where u live too. this is new to us and our technology is affected by it. i have personaly shelded my system and it has never run better. also heat might be doing it. another thing is stay away from built systems, they often time reuse parts. build your own!! come on people. i have had nothing but bad luck with compaq, Dell, gateway, ibm and others. though Dell is the bet of those brands. check your tempeture, power output and electromagnetic fields( ie do u live on a fault line or near high power cable, do u live near a radio/TV station or power plant) however i would guess it is a power supply problem. oh and check your house current for stron spikes and drops, that really fucks with shit. i have goten computers that run like shit in one house and run fine in another.

Nah, all the things I mentioned that were busted were busted over the 3 years I had this pc. I managed to install WinXP on the hard drive with 140mb worth of bad clusters. Seems to work fine and it's a good temporary solution to my problem. Now I'm wondering if I could fix my DVD somehow because I really want to watch a few movies. I'll fuck with it a bit later.

Funny thing though, the hard drive crashed right after I send an IM to someone saying if the clicking wont stop I'll kick it. I guess the pc was getting smart with me =P

I love xp, just installed it and everything works great, I don't even need to install any drivers for my video card, sound card, or modem, it all works great straight from the first boot. Although I won't install much software untill I get my new hard drive, this one is just temporary.

AND THANK GOD I MANAGED TO SAVE MY 3.5 GB PORN COLLECTION!! =]

My friend and I had the pleasure of having to sit next to the most annoying girl on the plannet during computer class. She was one of those girls all the teachers love and think she is so sweet, but in reality she's a real bitch. She also knew didly shit about computers.

One day after having enough, and everyone working on a big project, my friend was like, "watch this". He waited for her to get off the computer, and when she did, he shut her monitor off. When she came back and thought her computer was turned off, she pulled a nutty which caught the teacher's attention. She practicaly demmanded we be expelled for turning off her computer and making her loose the entire project. My teacher was looking at her like, "wtf" because the little green light that indicated the computer was on was clearly lit up, but the monitor light was not.

As he was about to tell her the computer was infact on, she reached over and turned it off, expecting it to turn on. Then she got really confused because she thought the computer was broken now. Finally, the teacher told her what was going on, and my friend and I had a good laugh.
