Think my Mechanical is Dieing (not sure if right spot)


Hello all, this is my first post here.

I have an WD1002FAEX-00Z3A0 1TB drive thats going on 5 years old. for the last 6months my boot time has been extremely long with 100% disk usage. Now in the last 2 days it has been hanging up on teh Gigabyte screen as soon as i boot and i have to restart the PC for it to boot into windows. I dont hear any noises to indicate a dieing or dead HDD but im pretty sure this is the issue. Im looking for thoughts on a new SSD int eh $50 range or if anyone has any idea of if im even on teh right track with teh HDD dieing.



I partitioned off 200GB ages ago when i reloaded my OS and realized that was of no use lol. ALso wondering if that may be effecting the load speed since that section is almost full
