Scorpio Black freezes computer

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I was having problems with my laptop constantly freezing. No amount of fresh installing Windows would help. I took it out of my laptop and put it into my desktop to see what the problem was. The problem with my drive is that if I try to access it for more then a minute or so it hard freezes my computer and I have to reset it manually. I've used western digital's hard drive health utility and the drive passed. I also tried formatting the drive multiple times and it still does the same thing. Any advice on what to do?

Try HD Tune and see what it says, maybe the drive has bad sectors that the WD utility isn't picking up.

So I've been running HD Tune for a little bit now and I'm only half way done with an error check but about 1% of the sectors on the drive are damaged and the health of the drive is that 65526 sectors on the current pending sectors section on the drive are unstable. So is there any recourse or is the drive just pretty much dead?

Can't. It's a drive that came with my Dell XPS. It has no warranty with WD and the warranty on my laptop ran out in September with Dell. Guess I'm S.O.L like I thought. Thanks anway

If you've got another drive to backup onto, you could try zero-filling it. That might help it limp along by temporarily refreshing some of the bad sectors.

65526? That's a weird number. 65536 or 65535 is 0xFFFF. I'd normally lean towards it being an anomaly, but if HDTune's error scan reports a lot of bad sectors too, then it must be that the bad sector count is getting capped rather than going even higher.

In short, the drive is not just shot - it's really really shot. redface.gif You will likely have to replace it.

I do have another drive but it's not worth it to me. The drives been doing this since November and I just recently decided to see if I could salvage it. I already replaced the drive in my laptop with an old 160GB drive I had in an old unused laptop. Which is an old Fujitsu. I find it funny that it lasted far longer then a good scorpio black haha. I'll either replace it with an SSD or a cheap scorpio blue. I don't need the space I needed before since I don't game on the laptop anymore. Thanks for the info.
