hello hi, i read somwhere that you was having HDD faults.
and i noticed you were running WD6401AALS 00L3B2 harddrive.
do you still have the model: WD6401AALS 00L3B2?
just wondering because my haddrive failed and was looking help.
can you help thanks  or can i offer to buy it please.

My harddrives is working good so far but i still have those bad SMART readings. Allthough now i have switch to windows 7 and i have bought an SSD as system drive, so if the harddives fail i will still be able to use my computer while sending them to RMA.

So, no i dont have a solution.

aysta25, what is wrong with your drive? Sometimes there is an easy DIY fix. If you have a board problem, upload a photo to a file sharing service.
