Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
My desktop has been acting up quite a bit lately, and I'm pretty sure its due to the OS HD failing slowly.
This morning I woke up to a BSOD with KERNEL_DATA_INPAGE_ERROR, and it was referencing ataport.sys.
In searching the interwebs for explanations for that BSOD message, all signs point to imminent hard drive failure. On the good side, this is only my OS/apps driver, so I feel like now would be a good plunge into the SSD market, as I have 2 other SATA hard drives for data, and an external RAID drive for my photos/videos/irreplaceable stuff.
1) Is my assumption that my HD is on it's last legs correct?
2) What should I be looking for in an SSD drive?
