Hello every one,
Several days ago I got a n new computer, the specs are:
Intel G3285 (bought a used one)
AsRock H81 Pro BTC (bought a used one)
Toshiba 1TB DT01ACA100 (bought yesterday, a new one)
CHIEFTEC GPA-400S8 400W ATX
MSI GeForce GTX 650 TI
Windows 7 Pro
I've been experiencing a lot of slowdowns with the Seagate HDD that I transferred from my old computer, and after performing a HD Tune benchmark, I've noticed my old HDD overall speed was pretty low. So I decided to buy the already mentioned Toshiba 1TB DT01ACA100. I plugged it in yesterday and installed Windows 7. At first everything worked smooth, altough I was and still am concerned about low Minimum Transfer Rate during the benchmark:
Still, the system operated much better than on the old HDD. That was until recently, when I installed a few apps such as:
Java SE Runtime
...that my computer started slowing down again!!!
Meanwhile, I've been trying out different SATA cables to check if the benchmarks got any better (they didn't), and at one time, after booting the computer, the HDD made a slight beep noise that it hasn't done before. Now it keeps doing that noise after starting up and I wonder what could it be. Sometimes the noise doesn't occur, as seen in the video below (the second time I boot the computer it doesn't beep. Turn the volume up as it's quiet).
Can anyone please help? Is my new HDD faulty? Could it be my PSU (bought ~9months ago) - the only component left from my old PC that also used to freeze? It's driving me INSANE. Would greatly appreciate ANY help!!
