Someone pointed out that my UltraDMA CRC Error Count was far too high, now for some reason it would not boot after it heated up, and was giving me the "insert proper boot device" screen and everything, but I went in and switched the cable and port, and it worked just fine. Again, why would it do that while I was installing a game? when I unscrewed it it was super hot I tell you. I was wondering if this was grounds for getting a new HDD and wether I should worry about this

For some reason, Crystal disk does not detect any errors on the UltraDMA, the count shows as 0
