Problem with my WD Caviar Black

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi a couple of months ago I purchased a WD Caviar Black, and I've been getting some weird errors and problems since I received it. Whenever I try installing something I will receive an error usually toward the end of the installation, or I get the same thing from installing from a disc. Though it hasn't happened recently, sometimes when I play Starcraft 2 the game crashes during the load screen. Does anyone know if these are fixable problems, or if I need a new hard drive?
Thanks

Run a SMART test using HDTune or CrystalDisk.

I think you mean GSmartControl.

Either way, run a test.
