My harddrive sometimes gets stuck when I am installing some games to the hd. It just stops at that file, does nothing and I cant move my mouse anymore. Sometimes it continues within a minute but the problem reappears after some files. While my comp is stuck the hd light lights up and doesnt get out. What sort of problem is this. I have a WD1000BB.
I think i'm having the same problem with my HD,
It's a 60g seagate barracuda IV 7200 rpm drive and it routinely freezes up my whole system when i'm writing to it (usually happens after i've copied 200 - 400 mb or so).
It happens when i'm installing software, copying stuff across a network, and also when i was copying from a second hd in my system.
asus a7v133 (kt133 chip)
32mb geforce 2
My case and hd are also adequately cooled with 3 40CFM 80mm fans.
