Windows 7: recurrent BSOD and crashes even after format and reinstall of windows

Try to see if it's any of these sounds: Failing hard drive sounds - Datacent.com - Datacent (manufacturer really doesn't matter).

I got it from this google search: https://www.google.com/search?q=hard...t=firefox-beta

I've never had good luck with Samsung tests - try the Seagate Seatools test. If it doesn't work, then try the Hitachi Drive Fitness Test. If that doesn't work, post back and we'll see what else we can use.

It's kind of like the Fujitsu last one scratching noises

Seatools, Hitachi, and Western Digital have options to repair bad sectors.
But I'd have to wonder if that's all that's wrong.
I'd contact the reseller and ask to return it.

At work if we encounter bad sectors we NEVER repair them.
We insist upon installing a new hard drive.

Also, repairing bad sectors can cause data loss - so backup everything first!

I had the hard drive replaced, the brand new hardrive is making the same noises, I wondered wether it could be something connected to the hardrive so I plugged in my old broken one but that one didn't make any noise. It sounded normal, that hard drive is 500 gb and. My new one is 1 tb do you think it's because the size? Because I don't think its a coincidence to have the same problem with two of the hardrives in a row

i ask this as on the spec of the pc on acers support site they say:
Hard Drive1 Serial ATA hard disk up to 1 TB
is there a problem because my hard drive is actually 1TB? does it need to be under a TB?
