If u r hear any grrrr or scratch sound in hdd.are do u have one of these problems :hanging many times,many files corrupted,files disappear,or (A old bomb virus affected u r system can cause these like problems) unknown file automatically created with lenthy name and big file size above partition(ex:if partition is 60gb a file with 70gb size in 60gb partition).
if any of the problems u r facing in hdd no way to cure that if it has warenty contact manufacturer for replace.if no warenty throw it away dont use that because the virus affect inserted pendrives and all devices to malfunction.
no antivirus should find it and win xp sp2 is instalable in that hdd.
Otherwise dont care about these problem.
No, my HDD does not make any unusual sounds. Temperature is okey at 37 degrees celsius. As for any malware and virusses: I recently did a full system restore and virusscans, nor do I have any files that are very large, so I doubt the issue is malware-related.
However, every now and then, when I boot my laptop it is very slow. If I let it run for a while a BSOD shows up with an error (again) about the HDD failing. If I reboot my system, everything is back to normal.
Also, every now and then, Windows shows an alert about my HDD giving errors and tells me to backup important data (which I have).
