|Phil22, thank you for the reply...I had feared it was a sign that the drive was going. I did run the seagate WINDOWS tools. This did not report any errors.|
However, when I tried to run the DOS tools the drive was not recognized!? The drive is recognized in the BIOS.
I ran a second windows based error checker (HD Tune Pro) and when i cam back in the room the system had rebotted and hung at the boot screen.
Any additional thoughts? I am all backed up (of course) at this point and I have my finger on the "buy" button for a new HDD...
