   So same drive?

   As a wild stab in the dark, did you keep the PSU?  Maybe it's just a few 
Watts short now to drive things properly.

   I only mention it as I suffered a few years ago when I added a couple of 
fans to my system and it pushed it over the edge.  I didn't suffer what 
you're seeing, but the system started randomly locking up, sometimes after a 
while, sometimes during boot.  I think I had a 350W one, and bought a 500W.

   I got a meatier PSU and it was all sorted.  It's not necessarily a cheap 
what-if, though.

   Of course, it may not have been the Wattage that counted, it might have 
just been on its way out!
