I'm pretty sure my HD is going out, wondering if anyone had a new one. I need at least 250GB, 7200rpm SATA (3.0 preferred)

I've got 8gb DDR3 ram I could trade for it. I'll handle the shipping for mine if you can get it for yours. PM me if interested.

What have you done to diagnose the potential HDD failure?
have you booted into recovery mode or booted with a Live PE disk like Ultimate Boot CD, or pulled the HDD and slaved it off of another machine to run Western Digital Data lifeguard or WD diags?
Have you ran a full chckdsk on the drive? (chkdsk C: /r).
What are the symptoms?

Nah, I haven't done any of those things, it was a used drive when I got it about 3 years ago, and I get these moments where the whole PC locks up for anywhere from 30 seconds to 5 mins why trying to access files, or in games anything that should load in doesn't come up.. I can move but there isn't much of a game world around. When these things happen, the HDD light on my pc case is solid red and you can hear it clicking. Typically it just BSOD's now quite often.

Sometimes it won't even boot.

Either way, my dad is mailing me a few HD's hes' got so I can clone mine before its too late.
