Today I awoke to a notification from a HP Diagnostic Test. This is a monthly test done and it stated that a few items failed. Those being Random Seek Test, Funnel Seek Test, Surface Scan Test. I got a Seagate GoFlex Portable 1TB drive for Christmas and that was put into use since Christmas. It has been fully operational from the word go. That is, until today after HP did it's diagnostics. Also, the contents of my recycle bin are now hidden. If I delete something. nothing is shown in the recycle bin, but it will let me delete and clear that hidden item. I'm not a fan of HP as I find them very intrusive and "evil." This PC is almost 2 years old and running Windows 7 64 bit OS. Any insight as to why this happened and how to resolve it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

If it was put into use this Christmas return it if those results are for the Seagate and not the internal drive.
It appears that you have a hard drive going bad.

Sorry to give bad news.
