  1. Show us a HD Tune read benchmark graph.

    Also show us what it reports under the Health tab.
  2. 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...
  3. 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.

    See this article for SMART info:
