    i bought an 80 gb seagate hard drive. i ran my games on it and windows on another drive. before the 80 gb i did the same thing but with another drive. ever since i installed the 80gb, my games seem to crash out of nowhere. ill play them for 5 minutes then bam, they just shut down and it goes back to windows. windows runs fine. but the games just suck. i did switch all the stuff to the 80gb and partitoined it. now the games don't crash every 5 minutes but it does it every once in a while. please help

    well games crashing can be cos of lots of reasons. first thing coming to mind would be bad graphics card drivers, overheating, bad RAM. anything. but if you suspect your drive then do scandisk or "chkdisk /R" depending on your file system. also d/l a disk checking utility from your drive manufacturer's website and check your drive with that.
