Can the computer itself make a HDD go bad?

Craigslist had an immaculate iBook G4 in my area for short money and I was able to score it for my kids to use. We use it to play music and movies and games. It had a 30G HDD but everything started to act up. Programs would just close during use, and then all I could get was the startup sound, a grey screen and the Apple with the spinning wheel.

So I decided to replace the HDD with one (250G) from my old iBook G4 that worked, however the logic board was failing me.

Everything was fine for the first 3 times I used the computer, then it started to act up in the same way it did when I had the 30G HDD in there. I reset the PRAM and the PMU already.

What else do I do?

+1 Great question! It's so helpful to know what steps to diagnose you've already tried.

Definitely not an HD issue then, you should run some diagnostics, such as the AHT, also take a look at the RAM.

Thanks, I R&R'd the RAM and it works again.

That's usually my second thing to check, 1) HD, 2) RAM
