The hard drive crashing,does not coincide with using the internet,their is nothing that supports the intrnet causing the drive to crash,it was posibly giving warning signs that were ignored and just crashed.

You should try the TR article 200 Ways to Revive a Hard Drive that may offer some help,this is not guarenteed.

I don't know of anyway the "internet" itself could damage your hard drive. It is posible however that you may have picked up a bug from a site you visited or an e-mail you received.

More info;

BSD (Blue Screen of Death) just prior to HD crash (with and OD error(s)) is a sure sign your HD is getting ready to leave the system. Going on the internet will only cause problems if you pick up a Virus.

Knock Knock is a sign of head problems (alignment) try the 200 ways to revive the HD to save the data, still trying to get the name of the program that saved my data (keep forgetting to ask the IS tech that used it).

English ? I do not tipe very well either !

Hi, does it do this knock when booting? The most common problem for that I have seen is a dying spindle motor,(timing goes off and drive head cant find the begining of the sector)if you put your hand on it and feel it stop spinning, this is probably the problem and time for a new drive.
On the other, I know of nothing on the internet that can wreck a hard drive, but I know your BIOS can be reset, you could try going in and doing an autodetect for your HD, but I have doubt's that will help.

Try to copy your data ASAP on the new drive (if you're lucky you can save the big amount of data and even you're new system can boot).
