Need help with my secondary drive

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

For the last 7 months, I've been running a 120gb 840 evo and a 500gb 7200rpm seagate barracuda (both on sata 2) in my laptop. The laptop came with the barracuda and I added the ssd after about 2 years of use. Everything has been going pretty well with them, but recently booting my system became very difficult. Yesterday, things escalated, and the only way I was able to start my system was to remove the hdd. I don't believe the problem is physical, as my laptop is more of a desktop replacement (Alienware m14x r1).

 

The problem occured after I tried to launch BF3 and Origin froze. I restarted my system, and windows wouldn't launch. I uninstalled my hdd as a desperation move and tried again, which ended up working. I've tried to restart using the hdd multiple times, all of which failed.

 

Is there anything I can do to save my hdd? It has nothing extremely important on it, just about 300gb of games, music, and movies, but it would help if I didn't have to re install everything.

 

If any more information is needed, I'll be happy to give it.

Nope once a drive starts to fail there is no stopping it. Buy a replacement and move what you can.

I don't think the drive is dead or failing. I've had few problems like this leading up to the current situation, and it usually recovers.

My mobo and gpu dont seem to be having any problems, I just played some csgo just fine

Download Seatools, Run a short/Long DST on the drive. If it fails any of thoose two tests then its on its way out.
