I tried both tests using the old lifeguard diagnostics , Quick Test took me 4 minutes on a 1TB Cavier Black drive, the hard drive made crazy noises as if the hdd was gonna explode or something during that 4 minutes. My hdd passed the quick test.
The extended test took me 3 and a half hour, strangely enough, my hdd passed it as well.
I know there is something wrong with my hdd, I am running vista 32 bit business. Two days ago, when I turned on my computer, it said “A Disk Read Error Occurred. Please hit CTRL+ALT+DELETE to restart.”
When you do what it told you, you will just end up getting the same message.
I fixed it using a vista startup disc, doing auto repair, and chkdsk /r /f.
Strangely enough, when the chkdsk finished fixing the hdd, I saw I have about 190000kb of space that’s bad sector…
Before my computer went down, my computer in my antec 900 case is really quiet. Right now, my computer makes loud noises when the hdd is working.
Two things really creepy and worth to mention are my hdd used to have 580gb free space, right now it has 707gb free space. I get a Floppy Disk Drive A in MY COMPUTER when I don’t actually have a physical Floppy Disk Drive. Obviously, I didn’t do anything to install that Floppy Disk Drive.
I am so confused right now. I know there is gotta be something wrong with my four months old WD 1TB Cavier Black hdd. I want to return it for a replacement…but don’t know if they going to allow me do that under the warranty.
