last winter I had a bunch of old burned CD's with stuff I didn't need anymore, so I used the condensation to stick them to windows all over the house.

I almost got a SSD for my gaming PC, but I wanted the extra space for less money.

I forgot that every HDD I buy breaks within a month. I really wish I just sprung for the SSD, I can't play any of the high end games that I specifically payed $2000 for a computer to play.

Not sure what to do, because as usual, the disk check utility doesn't notice a problem even though the thing clicks like an old rotary phone every time I run Batman. Either I'm unlucky or really magnetic because this always freaking happens.

No, it really doesn't. This computer cost so much I don't even dare go on suspicious sites, even though I have an antivirus... so I think I just kill hard drives with my presence alone.

It's cuz I'm a tree wizard, obviously, you know how technology gets around magic :P

Have you tried calling the hard drive companies? Most of them have 3 or 5 year warranties.

Well, I got this all preassembled from a custom PC site, but the parts are all under warranty.

I'm just hesitant to ship out my hard drive for weeks for a problem that occurs specifically within high-requirement games when chances are they're going to send it back and say nothing is wrong, considering that the disk check isn't turning anything up.

And before you ask, yes, my computer's other hardware is more than capable of running Skyrim xD

Maybe they're just not seated in the case properly so the fast reads are making it wobble.

I understood "wobble"

Actually, I understood all of it, I just don't understand where those things are and where they should be in relation to where they are now. I'm not an electronics kinda guy.... yet.

Now, could this wobbling be the cause of the blue screen of death that keeps chasing me out of Arkham City?

The BSOD probably has something to do with Arkham being one of the worst coded games in history. >.>

Open up your case and find your hard drive, try to move it gently and see if it has any give.
