Tags: Hard Drives Storage Last response: November 24, 2004 11:16 PM in Storage Share adammaxwell November 24, 2004 10:38:54 AM Is there a diagnotic tool out there which can test the hard drive for performace? I think one of my drives is about to drop My computer is hanging every 20-30 minutes for about 1-2 minutes a piece, completely unresponsive. No bluescreen or error, just unresponsive. Mouse wont move at all. Updated XP, updated antivirus/scanned, updated adaware,spybot. Chkdsk, defragged. Still have the problem Sometimes I've noticed when the problem stops a small sound comming form the box, and it sound like a hd starting to read. I could just be paranoid.
