I have just put together a new computer and ever since my harddrive makes these "popping noises". I assume this is the hard drive booting or something because it is the same noise it makes when I first turn on the computer and always has when I had it in my older computer. The "pops" come when I try to access my cd drive in windows, this is followed by a lockup. >< It seems like my computer has trouble running two IDE devices at once. What would cause this?<P ID="edit"><FONT SIZE=-1><EM>Edited by gnomie on 02/26/04 11:07 AM.</EM></FONT></P>
Got the "popping" noise too. Random. It's only a Windows audio popping sound, btw. I had the rebooting thing happen today too, for the first time. wtf??? Scanned everything, all ok. Unplugged all my other drives, booted from c:\ , and it booted, no problem. Re-hooked up the other drives, booted again and lo and be-hold re-boot with no problems...wtf? Billy Gatessss et. al. are doing some heavy ****, my man. They should drop the drugs./;';';';';'lllll Or maybe we should all be doing the same ones so we all know wtf is going on.
