WTF! 160gb Hitachi bit the dust?

160gb SATA bit the dust? Maybe
I have a 160gb Hitachi oem 8mb SATA hd. The problem with the 160gb drive is right at the os splash screen the computer reboots. I then try to reload the os and when it say scanning hds or checking disks. It takes like 1 hour. I then try to reinstall or delete the old partition and it wont let me.Whats wrong? The computer ran fine for 3 months. Think its busted
The only time it reboots too is at the splash screen. I can ener bios, or whatever. BTW i do lod the sata drivers, so dont suggest that.

The motherboard is a MSI NEO2 Platinum Nforce3 and a a64

One day my brother just shut off his computer and turned it back on and it would reboot.

hitachi, aka ibm most people will tell you their drives are not the most reliable
i recomend you grab a copy of ultimate boot disc and run the diagnostics it has for your drive on it.
