Warning, I'm posting this before I hit the bed after messing with this all day. So won't respond until the A.M Hopefully I get some suggestions besides DOA.
Now, I installed Crystal Disc. No problems and it's listed Good.
I installed HDTune prop 5.5 and it says (B8)End to End Error Detected. 98 98 99 2 failed.
Also (c7) Interface CRC Error Count 200 200 0 1 attention
I am currently running the full scan and so far it has no damaged blocks about 50% through.
I have not done chkdsk yet as I am waiting for .NET framework to install so I can then install seatools and try that. But .NET seems to be taking it's sweet old time to download so it's just a wait game before I can run these last 2 tests.
Any idea about the 2 error listed above from HDTune? I will of course update once I get the final two tests done. The HDD was barely used AT ALL.
Now that I've had the actual Win7 install I have already installed quite a few programs such as the ones listed above and also things like firefox, ccleaner , malwarebytes etc and have not received any BSOD just happened while installing.
BTW it's a ST9320325AS 320gb
If I forgot anything or you need anymore info just let me know. From what I googled about the End to End is all different responses from negative nothing to worry about to trash it now lol.
Still haven't done chkdsk or seagate so will update ASAP.
Sorry another update, Won't keep posting new to TTT the same thread.
I just restarted the laptop and got yet another BSOD. This time it was 0x000000A IRQL_Not_Less etc? I have never seen this many BSOD before with a fresh install of Windows ever. After the BSOD it gave me the option of startup repair or start normally, I hit start normally and no problems started back up. What the HECK?!
0x0000050 (Page fault in not Page area..I think is what it said) It did this one a couple times actually
0x000000a (IRQL less not Less or equal blah blah blah)
The only thing I will say about this one though is this time it happened after I tried installing the video driver but the video driver still had a code 37 Windows cannot initialize the driver error under device manager.
So far the HDD passed:
-Basic HDD test in BIOS
- HD Tune Pro test (no bad blocks etc)
- Seatools Short Drive self test and Smart test. I now have it running the Fix all Long test so this should be done by morning.
I am clueless. Passes all tests but yet I keep getting the BSOD. In the morning if it works through this fix all long I will do a chkdsk r and then will try another format and windows install. Unless I get any tips or idea on here.
