  1. Thanks I'd be folding now but we're having a heat wave (90s-100s) and my computer went from an average of 23c to 35c just on idle. Quite alot higher when i'm pushing it. When it cools a little (and this is the West Coast, it WILL cool off ), i'll fire it back up.

  6. I bought 2 Hitachi Deskstar hard drives from Newegg for $49.99 each. 320GB 7200rpm SATA / 3.0GB/s
  7. Thanks for the thread Juliet, it DOES shed some light on things, basicly, i have nothing to worry about
  8. Just the stock one that came with XP Home. I've been running it for quite awhile and just recently started having this problem.
