    I did a extended scan with the western digital data life guard diagnostics, and it accused bad sectors in my drive 2. Furthermore, it failed to be able to repair those errors.
    So, it's the hard drive then. That's annoying, just the other week, I had to replace an external due to bad sectors, and now my internal is acting up. Just my luck.

    Sorry to hear that! Did you have a power surge recently? or a blackout? Damage from those things can be awfully difficult to iron out. I wish you luck in getting it fixed!

    Well, not black outs per say, but the power does go out on an almost weekly basis around here. I should probably invest in a UPS in the near future.
    I'm going to go ahead and mark this problem as solved then.
    Thank you very much for the help.

    I had 2 surge protectors on the computers at my wife's office a couple of years back.

    There was a power surge and the current blew the first surge protector just before the power went out.
    Then they turned the power back on and it surged again - destroying the 2nd surge protector.
    Luckily it stopped then, because the next one would've gotten the modem, router, wireless access point and the main office computer (the others were off because of the power problems).

    Good luck!
