Expecting the worst from HDTune scan :/



Guys I had a feeling for a while now that my HDD was the constant source of frustration when my PC would just freeze usually under load.So I got around to running a HDD scan and these are the results,and so far compared to other results this result seems sporadic.

Do I need a new HDD or are these results not indicating random freezing?Thanks guys and advice pertaining to my "Freezing Issue" is welcome :)

VGA:R9270X
PSU:55OW CORSAIR
RAM:G skill 8GB (4*2)

    Thanks for the suggestions I will definitely try them out,meanwhile could you give a judgement based on these results?Thanks :)
  3. No. They don't tell you anything.
  4. I burnt the ISO file into a CD and ran at boot,came back a few minutes later and the test crashed :/.
  5. Those results are very poor for a HDD. However it doesn't necessarily mean that it's failing hardware. That is why i7 has given you the advice he has. If you have software (read virus/malware) that is making constant use of your HDD, it could cause this to happen.

    Once you've checked for malware / virus (MalwareByte is pretty good as a standalone scanner), then check the hardware itself.

    What ISO file?

    Have you done Checkdisk? Virus Scan? Seatools diagnostic?
