I bought a new Toshiba Satellite P850 laptop and I discovered that it makes funny clicking noises and suspected it to be the harddrive. I exchanged it for another one of the same model and it had the same noise. I thought that it would have to be that way, but yesterday was I was playing Warcraft 3, a game requiring next to none processing power I had a blue screen for the first time as I only have had this laptop for a week and used it for relatively low level gaming and programming. When I turned it on it was noticeably slower to load pages as well as responding time. I read on the HDTune website that if the minumum transfer rate is lower than 10mb, it is possible that the hard drive is dying. I feel that this computer is an ok computer, it has a good processor i7, 8gb ram, dedicated graphics ram, and I dont understand how it can drop so low and get a BSOD.
HD Tune: This is the hard drive, Toshiba MQ01ABD075.
Minimum 2.7 MB/sec
Maximum 87.2 MB/sec
Average 56.3 MB/sec
Access Time : 20.0 ms
Burst Rate 122.4 MB/sec
I really do not want to get another one of the same model, is the hard drive defective to drop so low, or is the laptop itself bad and whether I should get another model? Thanks for the help!
