Cool A good thing to remember...

...is that the failure rate on hard drives is 100%.

Backup often.

Does it by any chance say something like "Remote Protocol Connection(RPC) Error" and then give you a 60-second warning before it shuts down???

Mine started doing that last night for no good reason.

I start up and after about 3 minutes or so, the above message pops and automatically shuts down after the 60 seconds are up...WTF??
