    Hard Drive Problem

    Hey guys,

    I've noticed this problem starting to happen more often recently.

    I will be listening to Mp3's while driving. I have Power LED's and Hard drive LED's in my car dash (see webpage in signature). Probably once a day, the hard drive lights will go solid red, as if the HD is being accessed, and the system will lock up. I can't move the mouse, use the remote w/ the IRman or anything.

    I have an FV24, Maxtor 60gb 7200rpm HD, 128mb Ram, WinXP Prof, Keypower DC-DC PS.

    The strange thing is, that this happened back when I had Windows 98 installed on the Carputer. That's why I'm thinking it's a hard drive problem. I've tried scan disk and defragging. Unfortunately the defrag takes so long I can't let it run long enough to finish since it's in the car.

    Anyone else ever have this problem? Any suggestions?

    Install motherboard monitor and find out what the CPU temp is before it freeze. It doesnt look like you have enough air circulation.

    I had the same exact problem. My drive was a Maxtor Diamondmax 60GB 5400 rpm drive. The PC would lock or just not start correctly, espiacially when cold. I eventually switched to a 30GB WD hardrive and all problems went away.
