signs of hard disk failure
by curlybilly - 7/2/10 6:49 PM
For about a month sometimes I have trouble booting up my computer. It just hangs up at different stages of the boot up process. I restart it and windows 7 tries to fix it. It does not work. Windows says that files are loading to repair start up but they do not load. I restart it asgain and the same thing happens. So I turn it off for about 5 minutes and restart it again. Sometimes the same thing happens, but sometimes it starts up correctly. This has happened about 5 times in the past month. The hard disk is a little over 2 years old. It is a Seagate caviar 300 Gb.
Is this an indication that the drive is failing??
Thanks in advance.
