2 Months ago my Western Digital (IDE ATA 250Gb) has been broke because of bad sectors.
I replaced the broken hard drive via the importer itself (Midicom).
2 Weeks ago my PC return to show errors & alarms: The PC got stuck, blue screens in the OS & such on...
So I was thinking maybe the problem is because of my Memory (I had 764Mb of RAM) so I decided to remove the old Ram (Because it was 333 Mhz) & I bought a new piece (1024Mb, 400Mhz) & I installed Windows Vista (The PC was running just OK) but the errors & alarms still occurred.
After I tested my system more deeply I saw that My Hard drive AGAIN contain bad sectors in it.
I don't have problems going again to the importer & replacing my hard drive but now I have some questions that I don't have answers for them yet.
Is there any possibility that the greatest company: Western Digital has lost her power?, maybe it's only with the old IDE ATA devices?? or maybe some other device on my PC affecting my hard drive & breaks it?? (If it's possible at all?!?)
I hope that you would be able to help me.
I really appreciate your help.
Thank you in advantage.
P.S I'm planning to buy another PC in March or April, but I will still MUST HAVE this PC running & kicking.
