HDD Problem i think. - Page 2

post #11 of 23
Thread Starter 
I have litteraly just reinstalled Windows 7, pasted all these games and stuuf from my External HDD to my desktop and have tried reinstalling them, This also happened before on my Windows xp 32bit later today. This all started happeneing though yesterday when some rogue anitvirus program installed itself on my pc and kept stating i had a bad HDD. I no its a fake program because i searched all over the internet, it was called Windows Diagnostics. This is litterally making me want to chuck this bloody computer out the bloody window.

Now now, don't chuck it, we can work things out...
I would do a full system scan using Avast, or AVG antivirus, they are free and they work great. Also download Spybot Search and Destroy and scan the computer with that. Now that you mention it, It could be that your external has a virus, and once you plug it into your computer, you can bet your going to catch it, especially after a fresh installation. Scan your external, scan your whole computer. It may take a while, but its better than chucking out the computer out of your window, then crying over it while you are putting it back together.

I just remembered that you might not be able to install AVG, Avast or Spybot S&D. So once you download them, Boot your computer into safe mode. Install and scan from there. Make sure to scan all the hard drives you have.. external and internal, and if necessary, scan USB drives as well.

Think i have figured out the problem, i think its my external HDD. I am right now installing Dirt 2 a legal copy with no issues but as soon as i go to install a game from my external it just won't work they will pop up whit corrupted data etc, i think the external has a writing problem. It was free anyway because i pulled that HDD out of my xbox 360 so i was lucky. thanks for your help dude anyway
post #19 of 23
Your welcome, glad to help. Happy you figured out the issue. You can double check if it's the external by using the program HD Tuner to scan for errors, and it can be used as a benchmark for hard drives.

Your internal drive looks fine from the SMART data. Though you might want to disable power management for the drive to improve its performance a bit.
