I will get a good 30-45 sec lag/freeze (entire computer just freezes but comes back) and when this happens I hear what sounds like the hard drive slowing and speeding back up (high pitch whine sound). This happened over the weekend 3 times during one day after the computer had been on for several hours.
The next day, it worked fine again for about 2 hours and then happened again 2 times in a 20 min period and then continued to run fine for another hour. My paranoid self just ordered a new HD from Newegg today, but wanted to ask here since I had issues with my PSU in the past.
PSU 550W (not sure of brand since at work now)
CPU: AMD XP 2800+
MB: KT400 Dragon Ultra
Mem: 1.5GB DDR
HD: 60GB Maxtor 7200rpm ATA133
