No clicking like... the way a hard drive clicks when it's "thinking"... so it seems that it's sorting through data.

Either way, couldn't hurt to check this off the list.

Check disk is running now.

Nearly all my critical files are stored on a series of external drives, so my "C" drive, is really just for windows, and word and such.

I am looking for an excuse to go SSD though?

Depends on Disk check and sea tools

Stage 4 of this disk check is hanging a lot it seems. Silent HDD, and none of the files counting?

Ok... I finished running disk check (I fell asleep) and didn't notice anything? I know it went through to 100% because I saw that before dozing, and was too tired to bother reading the 3 seconds worth of info they popped up...

Any other thoughts?

Also running SeaTools now. The Short Generic finished with no problems (all passed), so I have the Long Generic running now. I'm assuming it's going to be a while, so I'll check back in later...

Seatools passed everything as well with no issues...

To be clear, I'm not getting BSODs... and the computer seems to be running fine while it's on. If I restart however, it seems 50/50 that Windows will fail to start?
