Last few weeks i have had random lock ups sometimes after a few minutes ,sometimes after a few hours, HDD light on solid and had to restart the computer. Hard Drive is a Seagate Barracuda ( 3 years old) I downloaded Seatools for Dos and all tests passed
I downloaded seatools for windows and the results were. Short DST Fail Long DST Fail Short Generic Pass Long Generic Pass However under basic tests when clicking on drive information a error message pops up " Fatal Error Occured During Inquiry" Program will end.
I am not sure if my drive is on the way out or if there is a problem with the software, is the Seatools software relible or are there any other checks i can perform to confirm a dying drive ? Thanks
