Hi there

I've got 2 hd's in my pc one of 30 gig and on of 3 gig now I noticed that xp is WAY faster on my system on a emty hd (got to test it with my father's hd :rolleyes: so I thought I format my 3gig hd an install XP on that and use my 30 gig to install programm's and ect on that but now is this a good or a bad idea ? And the 3 gig is currently set as slave could this give any problems ? because recently when putting in my hd's back I hit one of my ram's and poef brokken it so I'm coutius now to get in the box and change the master slave thingie :p

Install it on the 30 gig. A much better drive that will blow that 3gig away as far as performance is concerned. Just make a 5gig partition on the front of it or something and use the rest for storage.

If you're having those kind of problems with your hard drive, then you need to go to the manufacturers site and get a copy of their setup and diagnostic utilities... these are usually designed to get your drive ready for OS installation... doing things like partioning and formatting in very short order. You can also run their diagnostics to see if the drive is in good shape... if it's not then get an RMA and get a new drive - your drive should have a 3 to 5 year warranty on it.

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

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
