When this happens, all HDD activity stops. Gets into Safe Mode, but the same happens after a few mins. Same for Last Known Good Config. Repair with Vista disk says no problems. Fan clear and runs at normal speed. Any thoughts please?

It's stalled again, so I'm thinking it may be the drive. Passes all the Seagate checks though. I'm running checkdisk again to see what happens. If no joy, I'll take off what data I can and load Vista onto a new drive.

New drive installed and no problems (did try to reinstall Vista onto the old one, but it hung about halfway through. Interesting that the Se4agate tests revealed no problems),
