WD10EARS unstable system


#1

Hi I have the following hardware:

I3-540 3.06GHz Intel Core Clarkdale
Gigabyte GA-H55M-S2V (rev. 1.4)
Patriot Series G ‘Sector 5’ Edition 4GB (2 x 2GB) DDR3 1333 PGV34G1333ELK
WD Caviar Green 1TB WD10EARS
OCZ StealthXStream 500W 36A

I have problems when copying from USB. The copy process completed successfully but the file is damaged.
In addition the system is unstable: the Windows 7 Aero connects and disconnects and some applications stop working quite often.

It is possible that the hard drive cause this problem.
Thanks in advance.
Greetings.
