#2 has me in tears of laughter!

#1... well, if you remember there's a company out there called Seagate... and I remember something they used to make called the ST225 - a lovely product - except that after about a year, the bearings stuck! Stage one was to try knocking on the side of the drive with a big screwdriver - and stage two was to drop the entire case from about 6". If you got lucky, you were rewarded with the sound of the platters spinning up......... slowly!
