I have a p150 with 64MB and a Quantum Fireball 4.3GB.  The problem isvery weird.  Sometimes when i am compiling i hear the drive make a "click"
and the whole system locks up.  th eonly way to get it back is to restart
the system via the reset button.  When it runs through the bios scsi check,
the HD doesn't appear.  So i open the box and shake some of the wires 
(which looked fine) and then i reboot.  It locates the HD and continues to
boot up FreeBSD 2.2.1.  
So far its happened twice.  after the second time i changed the speed of my CPU
from 166 to 150 (i had over clocked it) .  i raninto probs during the kernel fsck.  i had to run fsck manually to revive the HD.
Do you think this is from overclocking? or could it be something with the HD? or maybe something else?

please email me your response.

thanks in advance.
