Cool! Can I ask another question? I just ran the Belarc Advisor and received a very unexpected result. It said "Maxtor 53073U6 [Hard drive] (30.73 GB) -- drive 1, s/n K603QVGC, rev DA620CQ0, SMART Failure
WDC WD100EB-11BHF0 [Hard drive] (10.01 GB) -- drive 0, s/n WD-WMA712640295, rev 15.15M15, SMART Status: Healthy"
I have two drives, the 10 GB is my 'C' drive and that's the one that I thought was failing. But this seems to say that it's my second drive, the Maxtor, that's failing. If I'm reading that correctly, I'm really confused now. You see, the problem that I have occurs when the system boots up. That's when I get an error message and the start up is HORRIDLY slow. Do you know why having my second drive go would affect how my computer boots up? My only guess would be that I must have something on that drive that the computer looks for during the boot, but how would I find out what that is?
