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.

Can you tell me what the other components are?
It is possible that to high temps inside your case make your system crash or that you have a to weak powersupply.

My case has so many fans that it hovers above the ground :eek: .

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.

win98 se
asus a7v133 (kt133 chip)
duron 850
384mb ram
32mb geforce 2

My case and hd are also adequately cooled with 3 40CFM 80mm fans.
