WD Black^2 freezes disk not recognized

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Alright so,

Here's what happens. A month ago did a fresh install of win7 64 on my black ^2 drive used ssd portion for windows and CSGO, and the hdd for storage. Pre downloaded all the newest up to date drivers for my components, mobo, gpu, lan ect. Also i just want to note that i also followed the special procedure of shrinking my black^2 drive before reformatting again then un shrinking it. So for a month or so everything is running just fine. Then while using FB computer freezes then goes to bluescreen. I restarted let it do its crash dump and what not and tried to run Counter Strike. As soon as i entered the game complete freeze again only this time it doesnt blue screen and goes into a reboot loop. Says disk not recognized but works shortly after and asks to boot in safe mode. Tried booting to safe mode says its missing reg files. Try to repair with windows usb and still fails to boot to windows. This is the second reformat ive done due to the same exact problem. Works for a month or so and just locks up. I ran mem test for a short time didnt find any errors. Checked temps all are good. Clocks are all stock. I ran this health program that was created spacifically for the wd black^2 and it showed that it was healthy or that it passed all tests.

Specs:
Intel core i5 4670k
Thermaltake 500w psu
XFX radeon r9 270 gpu
Wd black^2 sshd
Kingston hyper x blu 8gb ddr3
Creative xfi extreme gamer sound card

I would like to add that the hard drive was recieved from a tester at Western Digital and the drive was used for testing but was said to be fine. So just keep that in mind. All the other components are entirely new.
