I run a 2.6 ghz celeron,2 gig memory,400 gig harddrive,windows xp home
The problem I am having is there are timme my pc will sound like the harddrive rocker arms crashing and it will freeze the pc. I have replaced the harddrive twice now and it does the same thing. I am wondering if this could be a cpu problem or motherboard problem or memory problem? Is there something out that I can test this to find the proble. I would hate to replace all of them and findout it was something else
Thanks
ernie

It could be the CPU or Power Supply fan bearing going out.... Try pulling the cover off so you can see inside and track the sound down to its source next time it happens.

If the sound appears to be coming from the Power Supply Unit then replace it. They don't cost much these days!

I keep the cover off all the time. I do have 3 other harddrives but one is not hooked up (no power)it is just taking space.I have a 2 cd/dvd running on a 480 watt power supply. I did hear the noise coming from the hardrive area. My question could this be a over heating harddrives or the power is low. I had this harddrive replaced twice keep getting the same problem.
Thanks

I suggest you to replace the power cable which connected to this hard-disk, replace it with the power of CDROM or with a free cable (if you have one).
Sometimes the connectors inside the socket of these cables wants to be cleaned and tided well.

I did the flip SATA power cables.My main harddrive is a sata..It is still making the noise and freezes the computer.

ave a look at event manager to see if that gives any clues. Google for event viewer if you don't know ow to use it!
