    Man, back up all your data ASAP, your hard drive could completely go anytime. It is definately your hard drive. Its going down the hole. What type is it anyway?

    What kind of HDD do you have? it sounds like you're HDD is toast...that is the click of death that you are hearing
    like amd_man2003 said, backup whatever you can while you still can

    while those CDs are buring you might want to check to see if your warranty is still good, if not you'll be shopping for a new HDD real soon

    Hooking up your HDD to another machine to back up data can server two purposes. Backin up the data.lol Also can tell ya if it's going bad by how it runs on the other comp. If it's a name brand. Then most companys have diagnostic app's. Check there home page.

    maxtor carries a 8 MB cache drive now too, so go with whichever you can get the best deal on...but I personally prefer Western Digital over Maxtor

    btw, don't let any ads about ata133 fool you, an 8 MB cache is much more beneficial to your HDD performance

    just look for this when shopping for a new HDD:

    ata 100/133 (sata if your mobo supports it)
    8 MB cache
    7200 RPM (10,000 if you can afford it)
    low seek time

    anything I'm forgetting here?

    burn lots and lots of CD :D

    or hook up a new HDD as secondary, create a seperate partition on it and drag over whatever you want to keep
