Will do, and thanks everyone who helped me, I'll try all software recommendations and clone the drive and then try to fix it with Seatools

Well to me this smells of a faulty read arm inside the drive it is either sticking because of a faulty bearing or the electro magnetic pulses are being thrown around by either faulty circuitry in the controller or the connections between the two.

No.

The only issue it could really cause if some data need by app existed in that bad sector, then it would be 'missing' on the new drive.

tried seatools dos and did the long test/fix and guess what? It found 83 corrupted sectors and fixed them all. I rebooted the machine and after a few days or so, no stuttering has happened and everything is running smoothly!

I would not trust it to one test, but follow up with another Seatools long scan followed by Disk Check at least once more now and then periodically.

Many experienced users never again trust a drive that has ever gone that bad.

But we're glad it helped.

After it fixed it, I did do another long scan and no errors were reported. I will check again with disk check but the windows utility really didn't help much since before I used seatools, it did not detect ANY errors while crystaldisk mark info detected the errors and also seatools detected the errors and fixed them.

These test two different things: Diagnostics test the surface condition of the HD itself, while Disk Check tests the File System residing on it. So running both gives you a picture of the whole disk.

Monitoring SMART with a program like Crystal Disk Info is diagnostic.

Ok then, I'll do a disk check just in case. Thanks everyone!
