I have upgraded all the drivers installed on PC using Driver Booster 3.
I ran tests with utorrent active and movies playing in the foreground on both wireless and cable and no bsod occurred so far.
Performing some test on the HDD I found some interesting things.I have attached the results on this topic.
One of the tool did not detect any problems with the HDD, but the other one is showing some warnings.
Looking on the internet for those errors different people say that I should not be concerned about them and the HDD is ok.
It seems that the HDD has a bad sector which is hidden to the software this is why not even a tool used to scan for errors will not detect it but on the other side it seems that there is some activity in terms of moving data from that bad sector to a good one.
I am not sure how to interpret those warning; it could be just a problem with the cable which connects the HDD, the HDD indeed has some bad sectors and should be replaced, etc ?!

Reallocated Sector Count
Count of reallocated sectors. When the hard drive finds a read/write/verification error, it marks this sector as "reallocated" and transfers data to a special reserved area (spare area).
This process is also known as remapping and "reallocated" sectors are called remaps. This is why, on a modern hard disks, you can not see "bad blocks" while testing the surface - all bad blocks are hidden in reallocated sectors. However, the more sectors that are reallocated, the more a sudden decrease (up to 10% and more) can be noticed in the disk read/write speed.


Reallocation Event Count
Count of remap operations (transfering data from a bad sector to a special reserved disk area - spare area).
The raw value of this attribute shows the total number of attempts to transfer data from reallocated sectors to a spare area. Unsuccessful attempts are counted as well as successful.


Thank you

Remove those a.s.a.p., they can cause more harm to the current situation.
You can remove them using a restore point prior using db3.

What are the other test results? I'm missing the log of chkdsk and the results of SeaTools.


Interface CRC error count means communication errors between the hard drive, cable or the motherboard port, this is nothing to worry about as they can be there from day 1 when connecting the cables. This is only something to worry about when it increases substantially.


Below is important to note, but shouldn't be something worrying about yet. A bad sector cannot be 'replaced', all that happens is that the system marks the bad sectors as bad and moves the data this sector holds to a secure sector. Ultimately when there is a large amount of bad sectors the hard drive is slowing down as it needs to look for proper sectors. If you do not know how a HDD works with reading/writing data then I suggest that you do some research to better understand the slowing down issue with a large amount of bad sectors.

Reallocation Event Count is the amount of attemps for marking the bad sectors as bad and moving data to secure sectors.

Reallocated Sector Count is the amount of marked bad sectors. A hard drive can hold a finite amount of bad sectors, if this amount is exceeded then it can result in problems as data corruption, slow downs (system freezes), BSODs and eventually an unbootable system.

I have attached the logs for chkdsk and SeaTools but no errors have been displayed.
For now I am still running some tests with utorrent and movies with the drivers installed by Driver Booster 3

Thank you.
