I'm having some problems with a pc I built half a year ago.
With an increasing frequency, it's been freezing up while I'm playing games. I didn't think much of it and rebooted when it happened, but after a while, it wouldn't reboot and gave me "disk read error" upon boot.
If I left it off for an hour or so, it would boot again and everything would be peacehs and cream until it happened again. So next time it happened, I ran Samsungs HDD test tools, and the drive failed nearly every test, but again, when I ran the tests again after leaving the pc off for a while, it would pass.
I assumed the disk was faulty, and got a WD drive, and it's been fine for a couple of months, but yesterday I got the exact same error. The game I'm playing will freeze during heavy hdd access (loading a new area, etc), and when I rebooted, I got a Disk Read Error. I just booted again and it worked, but I think I see where this is headed.
Do anyone have the slightest idea what is wrong, or what I could try?
