I am about to start working on a corrupted hdd (Maxtor(unfortunately) 250gb sATA), perhaps to save me some time, I was wondering if anyone else has encountered this: When running pc on this hdd, the comp loads up mobo screen; then comes the part that makes me laugh where my hdd makes these beeping sounds like an old gameboy or something, and the comp restarts; this cycle continues. If anyone else has encountered and found a fix, please tell me. I am going to start working on it now probably.

There are a number of hard drive recovery programs availible, which is probably what you need.

SpinRight (http://www.grc.com/sr/spinrite.htm) is a good one.

Alright, the spinrite didn't work, so I just went ahead and did a manual fix, just deleted the partition raw and formatted through windows, works now.

Get two 10,000 RPM Raptor WD harddrives... than put in a RAID 0 :-D Oh believe me, you'll NEVER wait for installs, even if you have a P4 :-)

Believe me, I would, however, there is other hardware on my buy list that are above new hdd's. I could imagine that set-up would get you some serious grindage. May consider doin that in the near future.

You should! I got that, but there is a problem... Over heating problems...I had to install VERY fast fans to cool down my computer and it STILL over heats [by 2 or 4 degrees] when I play games; but it's so wroth it. Def. consider putting this in your computer :-D

If it was properly overheating it wouldn't work properly. ;)
