Hard Drive Error

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I built a new system (all my specs are up to date) and I was watching a show in HD on iTunes and the computer crashed. Windows 7 told me that the error was the blue screen (though it didn't actually turn blue). 2 Reboots later, I kept getting "windows explorer is not working" so I went into system configuration and turned off unnecessary start-up files. Well, I rebooted again, so far so good on that problem. But every time I reboot, it seems as though my motherboard doesn't detect my hard drive for a moment. I get the message "no hard disk found" for a few seconds and then Windows loads, obviously since I only have 1 hard drive it is detecting the hard drive, but it just doesn't make sense, is something corrupted? I also ran disk check.

souds like a possible start to failure, id get a new drive ASAP, if its still under warranty, erase it and hit WD's tech support, they'll surely ship you a new one

Well that's no good, thing isn't even 2 weeks old. I had ordered from newegg, I told myself to add the warranty to the hard drive, and it looks like I forgot to do that. You really think it is failing this early?

there is a defective driver in every few million produced, no process is absolutely perfect, it is man made after all, they quality test them, but i gurantee not every single drive, WD has a 3 yr warranty i believe, call them up and ask nicely to RMA, they will probably send you a new one before you send the faulty one to them

WD rma process is painless and being only 2 weeks old no problem. They can ship first and you return defective within 30 days.

Just bummed out about having to erase everything, I just transferred everything over here and had this thing set up. It's not what I wanted to hear, but it's probably the right solution, thanks guys. I will get that done, very cool that they ship first.
