    Hard drives failing

    Is there anything that will fix this. How about HD regenerator?

    did you overclock?

    My understanding is that overclocking stresses the components even hard drives.

    If you hae an asus board you can lock the pci clock to 33

    also you have smart on your motherboard
    go into bios and enable it

    if you get the warning on next boot you should be concerned

    rma it

    It was failing on the other board as well and that definitely was not OC-ed. I'm running now at 2.19 Ghz

    egghead is talking about OC'n the FSB. Your new board has an AGP/PCI lock, when the AGP is set to 66 the PCI is locked at 33.

    I believe it's set at 66. I never adjusted that setting.
    This regenerator is going to take all day, from the looks of it. I started at '0" and hour or so ago and it's only at 8000 mb (maybe a 1\10th complete) So far, no bad sectors.
