I have several MP3 files on this computer, and when I have gone to play 3 particular ones, the hard drives locks up and the computer essentially freezes up. I hear the HD making its "I'm trying to find the data" noises, which inidcates a bad sector, or phyiscal flaw on the HD. It is a 20 gig laptop HD that has been replace donce already. So, I run a full system scan/ attempt recovery of bad sectors, etc. When I do, the computer automatically reboots when it gets to somewhere around 90% complete on phase 4. It will then scan again, until it gets to 90 something %, and then restart once again, and will continue to do this until I cancel the scan. If I could get it to finish the scan I could probably have the bad sector marked and not have to worry about it, but I can;t get it to complete. Are there any suggestions or hints you guys have?
