According to that, your HDD is getting too hot AND your voltages are low. Very definitely could be causing problems. The 12v rail isn't even putting out 9 volts. Let's verify...do you have Everest? If not, you can get it HERE. Get me the readings found under Computer > Sensor.

Shut the machine down for a while. It will run longer at a time. I think the heat is causing the hangs...is the HDD installed between other drives or is there plenty of breathing room for it? We need to get that cooled down to a max of 40*C.

hey wannabe1 .... why i dont think its the hd because it had a WD 6.4 gig and it locked up then but do you think it could be my powersupply causeing this? the drive i installed by myself :whistling: *proud of it* i made sure i had 2 harddrive cades up and down (positioned it in the middle) i only got a floppy and cd rom in the top slots and it's a terminator board (REAL SMALL) so there's plenty of room for the HD

Yup...I do think it's the PSU. The HDD temp needs to come down a bit, though. How many fans do you have in the case?

You got another PSU laying around you can try on that machine. Should be at least 350W.

That server still running? :whistling: Tell your dad "Hi"!

Change out the power supply and the temp might go down a bit, too. The PSU may have been generating a lot of internal heat.

Test your RAM, too. Windows Memory Diagnostic Tool Either by floppy or cd...just follow the instructions to create the disk.
