I find it to be a strange coincidence that two drives have failed so quickly. Is it possible that there is a motherboard issue?
I doubt it is the power supply as I took out the HP 300W PSU and replaced it with a Corsair 400W PSU.
I don't do any gaming or anything else intense on the computer. I primarily do word processing, some video editing and web browsing. For the last week, I didn't even do much of that stuff.
Is there any chance that installing Vista SP2 caused the hard drive failure? I had just run a diagnostic on the drive and it passed. I then installed SP2 and it seemed ok. But shortly thereafter, the drive had begun to fail (I heard clicking and decided to run the diagnostic).
