This is uaually an OS problem.
Sounds like Win2K or XP.
A quick way to troubleshoot this.
Take an old 500Meg or 1Gig Hard Drive.
Put it in as C:
Load Win98SE
Is the problem still there?
We keep old "Known Good" hard drives for just such tests.
Regards, Chris

Ye that sounds like an OS problem it is not hardware. Remember XP does not support MS DOS. Win 2000 does. If you are running Win 2000 in your DOS (cmd) window type C>mem /c, what is the Total FREE? Are the DOS programs text or grahics or doesnt matter? You may need to look at your config.sys and/or autoexec.bat to see if you even have those!
