Windows 7: Windows has detect failing hard drive

Windows has detect failing hard drive

Ever since I installed Windows 7 32bit I have been receiving the "Windows has detected faing hard drive." I have ran several hard drive test and they all came back stating the drive is not failing. In disk management it says the drive is healthy.

Is this a false positive thing happening here in Windows 7?

Windows 7 x64 finally!

Hi jaxsun, welcome to the forums

1) back up all your data as soon as you can. It might be a hardware problem detected by SMART parameters that the programs don't catch

2) Check the manufacturers website for any diagnostics tool and run it for your drive.

For more advice we will need to know what your specs are, pls fill in by clicking My system specs on the left lower side of your post
