  1. First of all turn off the caps lock and don't post your question in all caps. Now as for all the drives showing bad sectors one possibility is a power issue is causing the problem. Were all the drives checked on another computer for bad sectors before you installed them in your laptop? What are you using to check the drive for bad sectors? Are the drives you checked new or used?

    No problem, I am interested to see what you find out about the drives. If possible check the drives on a another computer (you can hook them up as external drives) and use a different program, preferably one from the drive manufacturer, to test the drives for errors.
