    No one here is going to know the exact answer to that question...how would they? They don't have the drive in their hands to look at...That is something Maxtor would have to tell you.

    In your bios, do you have your ram set to SPD?
    If not, change it so it does. And the cpu settings and anything else to optimal.
    Then you can go back and change them if you want AFTER this thing is stable and you are back on the road.

    Did you d/l the bootdisk from Maxtor?

    If not, do so. Then follow the directions from Maxtors site on how to diagnose, fix, and reformat your drive.
