    does the error go up as well as down, if thats the case, then dont worry too much till it gets to the T.E.C date.

    well.... no clue about that, but if it was i don't think it would be saying your drive is OK, now would it?

    heh. don't power supply faults/limitations suck? That's how i lost my GeForce 4 Ti4200. Power Supply in my Sony Vaio wasn't NEAR powerful enough to maintain it. *sniff* will always miss it. *thinks* wait, i have a 5700 now...... :)

    yes in the last 4 years i have lost two mobos to cheap PSU's they suck indeed.

    hopefully everything is ok with the drive... im sick of dealing with them. lol you dont know loss untill you lose 300 gigs worth of info with only 50 gigs backed up.
