A crash is likely... one of these times you'll probably get the 'can't find disk or OS' message. You need to get the goodies backed up asap and go shopping.

Do you have a Compaq by any chance?!?

Get a new HD and use the utility that comes with it to copy your current drive to it...

I suggest you copy important files, buy a new hard drive and then reinstall windows. It's your hard drives problem and you can't fix it. You should do it ASAP to avoid losing data you want to keep.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.
