Yep it just failed again. I'm just glad I backed up my music that was on it. Guess I'll rip it apart for the magnet and buy a new drive.

After searching the internet for quite some time, I'm happy to have come across a forum that can actually help me! So, I built my PC about a year and a half ago and have had no problems. I upgraded to Windows 8 when it was released. A few months ago Norton started to alert me of high disk usage by said application every now and then. I thought nothing of this because my computer continued to run well. As of a few weeks ago, I've been witnessing intermittent occurrences of extreme slow down in which my sound will get robotic for a few seconds and whichever game I'm playing (I use my PC mainly for gaming) will drop frames significantly. After a few seconds, things go back to normal. This will happen 2-3 times a day. My first thought was that my new Nvidia beta driver was causing it, so I went back to the one I was previously using. That didn't fix anything. Yesterday, I noticed that my disk usage was almost constantly at 100% or close to it in task manager with less than 1MB/s being used. There were times when it would drop back to <10%, but it would eventually go back up to 100%. Since I never really took note of this until the extreme slowdowns started to occur, for all I know this may have been going on for awhile now. Anyway, I ran a chkdsk /r and will provide the log. I will also provide my health results from Defraggler. I hope we can get to the bottom of this because I have about 800gb of stuff on my drive and I would be devastated if it was lost.



Thanks for the help,

Rich

    Anything that would be devastating to lose should be backed up. wink.gif

    Looking at the drive's SMART info from Defraggler shows a HDD in perfect condition (all the "Real Values" showing "0" are supposed to be "0").  I will gently mention that while Defraggler gives one of the nicest views of HDD's SMART information, it is one of the worst defragmenters to use if improving your system's performance is the objective (Windows built-in defrag is much better, and MyDefrag is even better than that).
    However, I am concerned about chkdsk's logs saying "Windows replaced bad clusters in file 363855 and 398302", even though when it was done, it still reported "0 KB in bad sectors."   I recommend running "chkdsk C: /f /v /r /b" and seeing if it comes up error free this next time.  Then, look at Defraggler's SMART information again and see if the same "Real Values" read 0.  If it doesn't report any bad sectors, and the HDD's SMART information still looks good, I would wait and see if the lagging still persists. thumb.gif

Thank you so much for the speedy response, I really appreciate the help. I used my computer quite a bit last night to play League of Legends and I was also streaming it in 1080p and no lag so far. I will run "chkdsk C: /f /v /r /b" overnight tonight cause it takes quite a bit of time. Let's hope for the best smile.gif

I had the same problem on my system until i changed my power plan to high performance and in the advanced settings tab selected the option "turn off hard disk after" to never and my hard has been running smoothly since.

My Hard drive makes a loud cranking sound with programs open and in idle the same sound but quieter... everything look ok though?

    The numbers that I can see (which is about 2/3 of them) look perfectly fine. wink.gif

    Please be aware that while Defraggler has a nice SMART readout, it is a very bad defragmenter.  If you really want to defragment your system drive in a way that can improve system performance, read my post here.

I keep on having event id 153's since a got this laptop 4 months ago. Just earlier, I got like a hundred of them. Checked event viewer, I've had 1,281 total since I got the laptop. Also, I've had 5-6 watchdog violation BSOD's and froze up twice during boot where I would hear the hdd just stopped spinning. Stumbled upon this thread and used Defraggler to check SMART info.



Lenovo y510p i7-4700mq gt750m SLI 8gb ram 1tb sshd, mostly used for gaming.

My question is, does all of this have anything to do with the hard drive? Thanks in advance!

Yes. Your hard drive has 10 uncorrectable errors (bad sectors) and 57 end to end errors.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/S.M.A.R.T.#Known_ATA_S.M.A.R.T._attributes

It's got internal problems and almost certainly is causing the crashes.

The drive will have to be RMA'd or replaced.

If you want to try to help it limp along in the meantime, you can run chkdsk /r /f C: on it from an admin command prompt. It'll ask to reboot, and then it'll check for bad sectors and attempt to remap or ignore them. Upon reaching windows again (assuming the exertion doesn't kill the drive tongue.gif ) you can run sfc /scannow from an admin command prompt to instruct windows to repair any corrupted system files. That will probably "fix" things until more bad sectors show up.

The drive still has to be replaced at some point, though.

Edit:

Found this fun graph from BackBlaze that charts drive failure rates:
