Windows 7: WD Hard Drive Failure or Motherboard?

Note that Maxstor and Seagate are now the same company when you are looking for disks.

These days it's difficult to know what's what.

You get your Gas from the Electric company, buy your electricity from the Gas company, get your Telephone service from The Water company and get the water from your Cable TV company.

Nest we'll be sending the Laundry to Shell / BP and getting the Bus service from IBM / AMD etc etc.
