ok, this is my third hard drive to go out on me this week.. all on the same IDE channel
What the hell is going on here.. they were all pulled from other machines and were all working fine..all i can hear from them is click, click, click, click, click.....this is really starting to annoy me as i am out of extra hard drives to put in here...could it be power supply? Motherboard? I was planning on getting a New video card tommorow, but if i cant keep the damn machine running, whats the use ya know....
Any suggestions?

A chance that it could possibly be a power supply at fault here. What kind of power supply do you have and how are the voltages?

Do they have that smart drive stuff? check the status.
Or try one of the utilities like Western dig has for checking their drives.

If there really old drives there loud.

what does this have to do with anything in this thread?

get another power supply from someone if you can to test it out, or test the rails on your current psu to see if somethings wrong there. definetly sounds like a power supply problem.
