Computer freezing temporarily


P

perrin

Hi all. This is a problem I acquired when I installed a new HDD as the
bootup device. The computer freezes randomly for anything up to a minute,
during which the HDD LED is completely lighted (not flickering as in
ordinary access of the drive).

I'm not sure if the problem is hardware or software related. When I first
installed a copy of Win XP Pro on the drive, I made the mistake of going
online to update it without installing any protection. The computer was
affected by a number of viruses, spyware and malware. I *think* I have
gotten rid of all of them - F-Prot, Lavasoft Adware and Spybot S&D don't
detect anything now. I am posting a HijackThis log just in case below.

I'm wondering if it can also be due to programmes running in the background.
How do I copy the list of processes and post them here?

I am also attaching a number of warnings and errors in the Event Viewer.

Specs:
Windows XP Pro SP 2
512 MB RAM
NVidia GeForce4 Ti4200
Maxtor 120 GB
IBM Deskstar 80GB

Sorry for the long post. TIA.

Also I have 6 instances of svchost.exe running in my task manager - I have
read that legitimate instances should not appear?

Run the diagnostic software for your hard drive. The drive itself may
be bad or perhaps the cable you are using is faulty.

i don't know where you read that, but it's wrong... if you have
administrative privileges you should definitely be able to see all
instances of svchost.exe that are running...

Thanks. Funny but I don't have HD2 - I have HD0 (2 partitions) and HD1.

But my Maxtor - the bootup disk, has been having errors - either Indexes or
Security Descriptors. I have run Check Disk to fix several times but Norton
Disk Doctor finds the error again. Btw my old IBM, now the Slave, was my
former bootup and had similar file errors as well. What gives?

Maxtor? By chance 300 GB? I've got one, which is supposed to be brand
new; and only three weeks ago (Message-ID: <112bhltjvfj1f99
@corp.supernews.com>), there was a rant by John Corliss, how his own
300GB Maxtor died. Maybe I should go buy a WD, to back my files up in
case something goes bad...

Thanks will run it when I get back from work. So you are sure it's not virus
related but HDD?

I spoke with a friend of mine regarding your problem. He feels you
might have a problem with the hard drive itself, or most likely (due to
the fact you mentioned you had similiar problems with the other drive)
that you have a bad ide cable. It's possible the new drive is indeed
failing, but he suspects a cable/ide controller problem is most likely
the culprit. You should try changing the cable first, and post your
results. I'll pass the information along to him.

One thing you probably should not do here however, is post a hijackthis
log without someone asking you in advance to do so. It's borderline
spamming, IMHO.

Thanks Sammy (and sorry about the log if it offended anyone - was just a bit
overwhelmed by the problems so I posted various things).

I have removed the suspect HDD - my present slave and previous master (which
was causing my system to crash). For now, it seems the temporary hard disk
freezes have stopped. I will keep and eye on it.

Now I just need to fix the errors file system errors on my master drive -
they seem to be persistent despite running Scandisk. Any ideas how to go
about it? Someone in another forum sugested a file system error.

Thanks again.

So you have 3 Harddisks attached?
I had the same problem with my installation: primary master and slave,
secondary only master.
Hundreds of errors: An error was detected on device
\Device\Harddisk2\DR2 during a paging
operation. .....
The problem occurred recently after applying some Windows-Updates.
The system became rather unstable.
The harddisks are totally OK, cabeling also is perfect.
Cure: I installed a 4th (dummy) harddisk as secondary slave.
Dont't ask me why: just intuiton.
The errors vanished completely.
I think the problem was introduced by some security patch.
