    not sure what's goin on here

    I got a physical memory dump today so I rebooted
    it booted fine, then windows would not respond, so I rebooted again and got a non system disk error
    I checked how hot the HDD was at this time, and it was nice and cool

    let it sit for a bit and booted again, it booted fine
    ran mbm fine without changing any of the default settings and heard grind grind grind

    I let it sit for a bit longer as I took a HD out of another computer to replace the other one
    then booted up just to see, ran mbm and selected asus for the temp sensor and a couple other settings

    now it seems to be running fine
    could that sound have been the cpu fan turning off and on?? or was it the HDD?

    I didn't get a chance to feel the HDD while it was happening to find out :-)

    system specs
    Asus a7v266-e
    T-bird 1.4
    Volcano 6Cu+ cpu fan
    Quantum Fireball 13G 5400rpm

    Sounds like you were lucky then, I've had much bigger losses in the past before. :(
