    How old is this harddisk and has it seen allot of use?

    Do you hear clicking or chattering often?

    Have you done many forced shutdowns or lost power recently? BSOD?

    He either got a new HDD or fixed it as it was almost a year ago. If you have similar problem, start a new thread, you'll get help much faster.
