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.

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

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