Has my hard drive failed?

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
Specs are obviously in my rig below, I am going out of my mind here trying to fix my PC. So on I think 11/2 I applied an overclock to my GPUs nothing insane infact I didn't even raise the voltage, I was noticing some micro-stutter so I disabled the OC after running it for probably a day. I only meteion this because it was the most recent thing I did, I don't think it has anything to do with this problem since the temps never even went past 75c. Then a day later my computer begins to get very 'laggy' and randomly freezing up a ton, when I was playing Planetside 2 it wasn't even loading the map or the guns so that became unplayable. Then an hour or so later it started slowing down when trying to read basic things in the hard drive.

I then went through about 10 hours of trying to track down the issues, I uninstalled all video card drivers, I even followed this guide here http://www.overclock.net/t/1150443/how-to-remove-your-nvidia-gpu-drivers I also uninstalled my Corsair Vengeance 1500 drivers, disabled quite a few things in device manager, turned off all start up items, I even went as far as resetting all bios options to stock even though I know I had properly configured them and haven't messed with them in a few months. Also just to point out safe-mode made no difference, I finally gave up and backed up a few files and formatted. Before I even installed 2 programs on my fresh Windows install it was already stuttering, explorer nearly crashing every 2 minutes, and taking a very long time to load nearly empty parts of the PC.

To me this sounds like the hard drive is failing, but I trust you guys here at OCN more smile.gif So could anyone give me a second opinion?

I highly suggest running this tool to check and test for errors:

If you cannot run or install from within Windows, make a bootable CD/DVD with SeaTools for DOS:

I have 1-2 of those it isn't that bad, it might be something else!
But then again you should never use a WD Green as a boot drive, i was told that when I got it. They are the worst drives especially the EARS version and have had many recalls.
Only use it as storage smile.gif

Yes I really dislike this drive, but I bought it when I was 13 in December 2010, if I had known then what I know now I would have chosen a different drive.

Do I really need to do the whole error scan? It looks like it is going to take at minimum probably 3 hours.

I'd say try the whole scan.
Also try using Windows to check the disk and recover bad sectors. Run chkdsk /r in the command prompt.

Results of the chkdsk /r I did it from Windows 7 recovery tools, nothing has improved the PC is still freezing and locking up a ton.
