Both HDD's about to die.

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
First things first, everything I need is backed up,so no worries about that.
I have put everything back at stock settings.
No BSODing, boot times normal, runs smooth, but the Event Viewer is full on errors and warnings
and Windows reports a S.M.A.R.T. failure. As I am not currently at home, I can't check real time any of the suggestions you may have, or provide the info (pics etc) to help you in a better fashion.
Oh,yeah, read/write times are slow as a snail .
Chkdsk reports no errors on either HDD, which is kinda weird and funny.
To speed things up, I know that my Seagate (OS installed) is 99% dying. It's making strange noises, like it is struggling to operate or something, and it spins like mad for no reason at all, and in Seatools it can't even start the S.M.A.R.T test. The second HDD (WD) passes every test except the short TSD (which leads me to think that the problem is OC related).
When I get back home (currently at work) I will check different SATA ports,SATA cable, update firmware of mobo and HDD's,clear CMOS and reflash the BIOS. After,I will run Seatools in DOS and see what happens. Though IMHO it is a longshot. And later, I will format both disks.
Sidenote. Memtest finds no RAM errors whatsoever, and apart from the noise and the messages,
no issues.
My question. Will formating be more stressful for my primary HDD? My guess is yes, but I am open to other thoughts and suggestions. If it survives, I will make the WD my primary volume. Would it be wise to keep the Seagate as storage (risky, and the obvious answer is NO).
Cheers. thumb.gif

Now if you want to Format and see what SMART says afterwards, to try and save some $, then go for it, but i wouldn't trust them fully. You might get a little more time out of the WD, but that other looks like it's about to have a Stroke...i big, painful, life-threating..Stroke. So just kill it before it surfers more. wink.gif

CHKDSK checks the Surface and sectors of the HDD for any isses. SMART is a "Windows Performance Index" for Hard drives, it monitors Everything and gives you a heads up if their showing signs of death. smile.gif

S.M.A.R.T. has nothing to do with windows. It's additional electronics/firmware in the HDD which monitors the HDD. Servers often have control LEDs to show the S.M.A.R.T. status of the HDDs.

Windows can of course use SMART to get monitoring data of the HDD, but linux can do that just as well and they will probably detect the exact same things on the same HDD.

It was an example to help him understand what SMART is, i'm not that stupid tongue.gif

Chkdsk is a Windows utility that allows you to check and on some occasion fix the HDD for bad sectors,errors etc... Rough description,but you get the point.

You might get a little more time out of the WD, but that other looks like it's about to have a Stroke...i big, painful, life-threating..Stroke. So just kill it before it surfers more. wink.gif

That's why I plan on doing to Lucy all those nasty things I discribe with every kinky detail in my initial post. biggrin.gif
