@F5ing,

Everyone sends me that link but, I keep telling them its dead :C

Quote:
Samsung - Go to http://www.samsung.com/us/support/ and select "Hard Disk Drives" under the Office category.
Enter the information about your hard drive model, then click on the Get Downloads link on the next page, then on the Software link on the following page.
If there's no downloads available, try this link - it seems to be the same version (ESTOOL v3.01) for every drive: http://org.downloadcenter.samsung.co...ESTOOL301v.iso
You must unzip the file before you can burn (NOT copy) the ISO image to a CD.
404 not found.

Also thanks ^_^

Correct Link

Samsung no longer does Hard Drives, this was sold to Seagate, I provided you a link for their Hard Drive section.

Have you gone into your advanced system settings in control panel and told it not to restart on errors? Might be blue screening, just it flashes too fast for you to catch it. I assume after you reinstalled it had the same issue, is your HDD partitioned as one single partition?

You're welcome, of course.

Forgot that it was this thread where the OP was requested to go to that site, only to find a 404. Sorry.

Even though there are only three companies that own the 7 or 8 different brands of drives you'll run across, some of the original companies continue to provide the diagnostics program for their old drives. I think the Samsung hard drive line was taken over by Seagate last year. That said, searching Seagate's site for Samsung branded hard drives revealed limited info. Other than links to the Seatools utility.

So now I'm at a loss. I've got to think about this. Why does CrystalDisk show valid SMART values even though Seatools show SMART as disabled? Could those be old values from when SMART was active on the drive, and they haven't been updated since disabled? I'm not sure what you would really see on a drive where SMART was disabled. Never seen it disabled (that I recall).

Can you disable in the BIOS and then do a CrystalDisk screenshot? Just to see if it reports the same values.

Reenable it when done.

Missed a few posts prior to mine. There is info on Seagate's site for your model, but very little...

Its not your fault, Its just everyone links me there and I see why but its no help if the links are dead.

Ye, am at a lost to :/ I just don't understand why my pc crashes when gaming?
I mean the pc specs are perfect for dose games.. memtest + passed 6 graphics card is up-to-date and is working fine (as I can see) Left my CPU running with prime95 for two hours and it never crashed it did go to 61oc but still no crash?
Which leaves me to my HD, I want to say its healthy but that is not my call...

And yes Seagate has info for my model, But nothing that will help me

So, let's see if those SMART values are static or are being updated as if SMART was running.

Set up CrystalDisk to launch on computer startup so that it's always running. Make sure to set it so it updates every 30 minutes or so. After a period of time you can use the graph function it provides to see if those values change over time.

You ought to see changes in temperature, runtime hours, etc.

It would be interesting to see what happens both ways. Enabled and disabled.

If you look in CrystalDisk's subfolders, you'll see text file(s) that contain the recorded values. So if the changes are too small to see on the graphs (due to wide scaling) you should be able to easily spot changes in the text files.
