Hey guys, I have this problem where from time to time, my whole comp stutters, from the cursor, to the audio. I assume its because of the HDD because of two things:
1. My HDD light in my desktop stays constantly on for a second and this is when it operates fine. Then right after, it turns off for a split second and this corresponding second causes the whole comp to stop/ stutter. It will then start again. This cycle happens for sometimes 10 minutes or more, making the comp unsuable.
2. After one of these events happened, I looked at event viewer and saw in the problems this: "The shadow copies of volume C: were aborted because of an IO failure on volume C: source: volsnap".
I assume I have bad sectors and volume shadow copy is amplifying the problem, but even after I scanned the HDD with the built in chckdisk, the problem still happens from time to time. Anyone have any ideas? I have a seagate 750 gb 7200 rpm drive.
