Sounds like if those HDD are in fault, I would RMA it.

They are over 10 years old though. I think that might be the problem.

The test on the 102gb was a Pass. I will install windows on it and see how it goes.

Check your memory, from your initial post it looks like it could be a dodgy stick rather than the hard drive.

I have one broken ram stick and one working one. That puts me down to 512mb RAM, but I'm going to buy a 1GB stick. I just tried installing windows xp but it told me after it rebooted that there is "An error loading the operating system". This will drive me crazy.

Take out the busted stick and just run XP...limp along till you get your new RAM. Best to buy 2 1GB sticks if you want 32bit win 7, more if you want 64 bit.
