3rd party Disk Diags tool? which best?

gang I have an unusual situation I can't explain: an ordinary HP desktop, good quality, that black-screened a couple weeks ago and left little hints about what the cause was. I'll have to sift through the minidmp to figure it out. But the superficial signs all point, circumstantially, to the Drive or file system.
no malware. no power surges/fails that I could see. nothing funny in the way of updates etc.
at any rate, it has a WD6400aaks drive - very common in hp/cpq and a good drive, as they go.

running the WD Diags fails due to a "Smart Enable" error. There are a lot of posts about this elusive error and no satisfactory answers. I plan to extract the drive from the system and run other tests on it. my 'other' hdd tests range from destructive to just old/antiquated Linux-based tools

what have you guys found that works well?
