Hi guys, hope I've posted this in the right place and that you can help me.
The other day I had a message that my primary hard drive had failed. I switched off and on again and it booted up fine. This morning though it was making some awful clonking noises and didn't want to start up. In the system error section it had

"A condition has occurred that indicates this COM+ application is in an unstable state or is not functioning correctly. Assertion Failure: SUCCEEDED(hr) Server Application ID: {02D4B3F1-FD88-11D1-960D-00805 FC79235} Server Application Instance ID: {5897422C-D018-4AE5-9C35- 1EEDD928D656} Server Application Name: System Application The serious nature of this error has caused the process to terminate. Error Code = 0x8000ffff : Catastrophic failure COM+ Services Internals Information: File: d:\qxp_slp\com\com1x\src\comsv cs\tracker\trksvr\trksvrimpl.c pp, Line: 3000 Comsvcs.dll file version: ENU 2001.12.4414.258 shp"

Can anyone help shed any light, is it an imminent hard drive failure?

Thanks for any help

Hi lisa65...Welcome to G2G!

it was making some awful clonking noises and didn't want to start up

The above statement in cunjunction with the error messages you've been getting, would likely point to a HDD failure in progress. Now would be a good time to get your important data onto other media.

A hard drive that is operating properly makes nearly no sound at all.
