Could I have a setting some where that’s set wrong..? One other thing before the HDD problem, I think that the OS said this…

Windows XP Media Center Edition Service Pack 2 (build 2600)  

Is this version any different from the one that’s just been installed by the service center…..? and could it be causing the problem..?
