Specs: Windows XP, 512
Ok ive had the same laptop since 2003 its been great never any problems besides reformating it a few times but just recently after about 20 to 30 mins of use it makes a weird noise coming from where the harddrive is located and one by one my programs stop responding and windows gets the BSOD i then turn the laptop off by holding down the power button it then makes a moaning noise as it shuts down lol. after a few mins I turn it on again and it works fine for another 20 mins. so do i need a new hard disk?

Possibly, but there cold be a heat issue too. If you're waiting 20 minutes, it allows enough time to cool down a little.

BTW, Noise does lean torwards the HD though. What I meant was a heat issue could have caused HD failure.

The laptop might need a cleaning.

That's possible too but I think the hard drive is probably on its way out.
