I'm confused, as I did a quick test and in 8 seconds it said I need to back up my data and send it in, I did a long test and nothing, no errors, did another short test and again nothing

should I send in the hard drive anyway?

And could this be what has been causing the electronic-y sounding lag noises that I have been having with my computer?

I would say RMA would be your best bet here. Looks like something is loose inside the hard drive and is bound to fail soon enough. Cheers!

Could you describe the sounds a little better? The extended test is usually pretty accurate...

Perhaps grab HDTune Pro (trial), look at the Health tab, and post a screenshot of what it says?

How full is your drive? Have you defragmented recently? Is the sound different from normal seek noise?

Well the sound is kinda hard to describe my computer gets really really laggy and it makes the noise like it lets see an old dial up noise almost but with alot of lag added to that. I defrag when i need to i use defragler so when im over 8-13 percent fragmented i defrag. i also would say i have used less than 20g of my hard drive if that.
I've done alot trying to figure out what is wrong with my computer its been doing this for a while now. so any ideas help
