I had a new build from a repected shop in my town…
the first HD was the 750 and it died after 3 months on Pass 5 at 36% of a scheduled defrag… when I took my PC in the shop it got a “read element failure” within 3 seconds.
I just ate that one… because I was out of time for the NewEgg RMA and did’nt want to wait 2 weeks for a refurb from WD.
got a 640 in the same model and so far it’s ok but here is my burning question…
BOTH drives made “seeking” noises from the 1st time I turned them on…even clicking on IE would make the drive sound like 2 hampsters on the same wheel trying to run in different directions…is this noise normal?
I have this PC to basically be a $2,000 XBOX because all I do is game on it…even just setting at my desktop the HD will thrash around and the light will blink on the front of the case like I’m installing a program…I find it hard to believe I got 2 defective drives.
again…this one is making the same noise right out of the box as the other one…advice?
