    Client's Hard Drive is a Maxtor 31024H1 sitting in a Dell Dimension L800r. Symptom: General lag to freeze on start up.

    What I've done so far: Scanned HD in my own computer (Jumper removed per instructions and set on cable snuggly in position with OD as Master; other drives in same position work fine; power plugged in). Scans lag to freeze.

    All disk utilities I've tried have also lagged to freeze (Ad-aware, Diskopt, AVG, Disk Cleanup, Diskcheck)

    Try starting in Safe Mode: Computer lags to freeze.

    Every now and then I do hear a single "click."

    Dieing? My vote is yea. Any nays?

    Thanks, Elvandil! Those will help me to "make sure."

    Tomorrow, though. Time for sleep.

    Thought so, but I didn't want to be the one....

    "Està".

    ¡Qué chimba es esta computadora! ¡Ni siquiera puede imprimir correctamente!

    How did you get it to print the correct accent mark?
