Hello, I've had this problem for a very long time but only recently it has become annoying. Every now and then when accessing my F: drive (windows installed on C: drive), opening firefox, starting a download or playing a game my computer freezes for about 3-5 seconds while making a sound like the hard drive is loading / buffering or something. After that it resumes normally, only to appear again after 2-3 hours. It's particularly annoying during intense FPS games or such when the freezing happens, I basically can't do anything only to find myself dead in the game afterwards :| Is there any solution to this? Or does anyone recognize the problem? I'm not really an expert at this stuff and would appreciate a possible workaround which doesn't involve removing / replacing any hard drives and / or other components! Thanks in advance.
