Show us a HD Tune read benchmark graph.

Also show us what it reports under the Health tab.

I have exactly the same issue... Slowing Windows XP after installing the WD Green Caviar 1TB

According to HD Tune (Health Tab):

One of my hard disk exhibit this error...

(05) Reallocated sector count .... (Failed)

What does that mean? and how will I fix it...

Thanks much...

Your drive has exceeded the maximum number of bad sectors allowed for by SMART. When a sector goes bad, its LBA is reallocated to a spare sector.

Try to backup your data ASAP and then replace the drive.
