    Hard drive acting stupid and slow

    Wow, just realized these drives have a 5 year warranty. Glad I bought the black edition. Gonna RMA it, thanks guys.

    Hard drive acting stupid and slow

    Yep, says it's having errors with reading the drive. I'll see if it's still under warranty. First hard drive to die on me, ever. Even my 15 year old computer's 12GB hard drive still works.
  3. Hey guy, I haven't posted on here for a while. In my current rig I have a Western Digital Black 2TB drive. I let my parents use this computer for about a year without me really checking on it, and when I was finally allowed to put it in my room, it was way slower than before. So I reinstalled windows, and I noticed that occasionally my hard drive went through fits where it read and wrote data incredibly slowly. I am using this hard drive as a second storage drive, and my SSD is my main boot drive. When it's in one of its fits, I can hear it read data twice, then pause for a second, then read, then pause for a second... until it finally works full speed again, which can be anywhere from 2 minutes to an hour later. I've tried plugging in the hard drive to different slots in my motherboard (right now it's in the hot-swap bay on the top so I can hear it better) (and yes these are plugged into different controllers on the motherboard).Restarting my computer when it's in a fit doesn't always solve the problem. I can sometimes solve it by trying to play a large audio or video file on the hard drive, but it takes awhile. One thing I think I might do is I never fully wiped it. I just "formatted" it, which took 5 seconds. That means it's not really wiped, right? Should I try that? If anyone has any suggestions, feel free to tell me. I'll try anything Btw; I don't know if it's still under warranty, but I'm willing to send it in and get a new one if that's the only way.

    Do the fans spin up? Or does nothing happen at all?

    Apple iPod touch Cable Charging Issues

    Just switch cables? Was this the cable you got when you originally got your iPod and it stopped working? Or maybe that was a 1st gen iPhone cable or something... weren't those a little different?

    The Google+ Project: Discussion

    Personally, I don't agree with the 18+ age limit. Most teens i know are plenty safe on the internet, whether is being Facebook or other websites. I do know some, however, that pass on those stupid virus links that download crap to your computer and sends it to all your friends. Maybe Google can implement some sort of limit to how much you can post, or what you post, so these sort of things don't happen. Or maybe they can have a thing where the parents have to allow their kids to use it... Just my biased (I am under 18) opinion...

    Who is your cellphone provider?

    I use Verizon. One thing i bet most of you don't know about them is they have free data roaming. So when you don't get Verizon service, but you get some other service, you can use that service for free, unlike most other phone companies.
