Hi everyone, I got som issue with my new WD Scorpio Black which I bought recently because of replacing my old HDD (alreadey damaged due to lot of bad sectors). It is for my Toshiba Satellite U500 laptop. I’ve installed the HDD properly, than formatted it and installed legal copy of Windows 7 64-bit including all needed drivers (downloaded directly from Toshiba Support Web pages). After all I started the laptop and it took a really long time to go on, some 5 minutes or more. Sometimes the laptop freezes immediately for more than 30 secs, and the LED for HDD Activity is steadily lighting. For example I want to run teh Device Manager,so I click on it and than it freezes, u can move the mouse but u cannot open or close anz window, the system or application doesnt react. Or If I want to run any application e.g. firefox it will not run immediatly but after some seconds. I looked also in the Event Viewer and found some Error IDs like 11, 3006, 3007.
The Error 11 should be something wiht the IDE Controller, but I didnt have any issue with it on my old HDD, only with this new one. I reinstalled all the drivers, but the problem still remains. Is the HDD damaged or is there somtehing with mz laptop or the windows? Thanx for all your help. Peter
