Alright guys, I decided to join the boards after reading for a while. My hard drive started having problems about a week ago, and I knew it was on its way out. It kept clicking and spinning and the comp would lock and unlock.. it was bad. Anyway, it finally bit the dust two days ago. I tried doing everything, but I came to the conclusion its done. Its corrupt. I have three hard drives, this was my primary. They are each Western Digital, IDE. I have a few questions. I have already ordered a new HD (http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/searchtools/item-Details.asp?EdpNo=1265028&sku=THD-250A ), and did something pretty stupid. I ordered without reading all about it and I noticed it was EIDE. Will this work with my current system even though the other two drives are IDE? Also, I am probably going to change the positions of the hard drives when I install the new one (Plug different IDE cables into IDE ports), will this do anything to the data on the drives? Also, when I install the new drive I will have to install the O/S (XP Home) as well as the BIOS. I dont think I have the BIOS CD anymore, so how should I go about doing this? The MB I have is the Lan Party Pro 875. Also, will installing a new drive and O/S do anything to the data on the other drives? Thanks.
