Hard Drive Failure/Corruption: Blessing in Disguise

Few days ago, my Western Digital Caviar Green(WD5000AACS) HDD started acting up. A new bluescreen every other minute. Re-installs of Windows and Ubuntu to no avail, no matter how much formatting. Diagnostics reported no errors. Wrote zeros to entire disk(a lengthy 2 hour process), and now it runs better than when it was new.

I used to boot in just over 1 minute. Now, I boot in <30 seconds. :bounce:

  1. The green drives are not recommended for use as boot drives. This one will work better as a boot disk: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822136795
