Hardware and Software Freeze, HDTune results have bad sector, Help.

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Recently(in the past 3 days with increasing frequency) I have been encountering freezes in my PC. The OS completely freezes, and the computer is deadlocked.

Also, the hardware also seems to freeze, as in my keyboard, mouse. Also when I try to press the start or restart button on my Cabinet, that does not yield any results. I have to cut the power flow to the System via the PSU switch and then restart it.

At this point it works fine. Until I encounter another freeze. Initially this only happened while watching movies, but now it ha happened when I was shutting the PC down, once while starting on the windows loading screen.

I don't know why the problem is happening.

My specifications are,

Intel i7-2600
ASUS P8P67 PRO
Seagate Baraccuda 1 TB
Sapphire Radeon HD 5450 1GB
Kingston 4GB RAM
Cooler Master Hyper TX3 EVO
Cooler Master HAF 912 Combat

I just ran the HDTune utility and here are the results.





What should I do? Does Seagate recognise this as a reason for RMA?
