Update your sata drivers?

I think I am starting to have a similar issues with my secondary computer. A reformat might help if you format the drive the long way but most likely the drive is just dying and theres nothing you can do except replace it.

Noob answer here - you've defragged it and it isn't almost full?

Do you know what is funny. I had a similar issue now that I think of it. If the driver updating doesn't work try doing a complete format. After I did that it was fine.

Here is what was up with mine.

When one of my hard drives was dieing I couldn't get the machine to boot and it wasnt' even the boot drive.

WD sent me a new one in less than a week - of course Thailand wasn't under water then.

Another user with same problem...well lighter i guess. How do i explain it..the drive is slow, i can hear the moving parts inside as though this is a 15 year old HDD(like a quantum fireball).

The HDD was defragged automatically every wednesday.

Im not saying the HDD is not full, but i got better speeds before.

That's usually a bad SATA cable.

Are you experiencing I/O flatlines? If you watch disk I/O with a tool like Process Explorer (or even Task Manager), is the drive getting locked up for ~30 seconds doing absolutely nothing?

If it is, that's an early warning sign of failure. I usually RMA my drives when they start doing that...


I would rule out other problems first, like software misconfiguration. Reinstall SATA drivers, check the device manager to ensure all caching is enabled, etc.
