Hi all, newbie here! I believe my hard drive is a Seagate ST380011A
. I've used 45.8G with 28.6G free.
I'm afraid I can't say exactly when I started noticing a problem, but it has been going on for a while now, and according to my event viewer all the way back to the start of the month, at least. It was very bad, constant errors, but now seems to have settled to every now and then again.The device, \Device\Harddisk0\D, has a bad block
I only seem to notice my computer freezing up due to this error while browsing the web, I updated to Firefox 3 a couple weeks ago, which led to the slow down in errors (or so it seems). I ran all the spyware/virus checks and nothing came up at all, apart from a couple cookies, unless it's really well hidden.
I would not of even suspected any problem other than spyware if not for the blue screen error I had during a defrag a week or so ago. It didn't seem to affect gaming (KOTOR2 or WoW), but I haven't loaded them up since it crashed.STOP:0x00000077 (0xC000000E, 0xC000000E, 0x000000, 0x00030000)
I haven't run any other scans for fear I'll break something and not get the thing to start up again.
Hope someone can advise! Thanks for reading!
