Here you go. . . SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

Is this the Caviar Green HDD?

Do the WD Lifeguard full test, it will give the HDD a thorough test.

I just checked the date on the driver. The one from the link I provided is dated 2011. The one that was loaded in your system is from 2009. Is it telling you that you have the latest driver installed when you try to install it?

To DeanP: I found the link by searching the forum and preformed the "sfc /scannow" and rebooted... now where do I go from here?

To Dave76: I am not sure if my main harddrive is a "Caviar Green HDD". It is whatever came preinstalled on my computer. Is there any way to test to see if it is a "Caviar Green HDD"?

To mgorman87: I downloaded the file from the link of the Marvell website and saved it into my "Downloads" folder. I then Clicked on the Start orb, right click on "Computer", then left click on "Properties". I then clicked on "Device Manager" in the task pane to the left and went down to "Network Adapters" and extended it. I then right clicked "Marvell Yukon 22E8071 PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet Controller" and left clicked "Update Driver Software...". Then I selected "Browse my Computer for Driver Software" and then selected C:\Users\Max\Downloads for it to search. It then said that Windows has determined that the latest driver is already installed. Is there another way to install the driver? I noticed that the file that I downloaded from the Marvell sited did not have an .exe installer. Edit: Ok, didn't notice that the file was a in a zip. Extracted it to my desktop and I installed it from there. Maybe I should pay a little more attention... Lol....

And just as a general update I haven't seen a BSOD in a while and the computer has been used for things such as general surfing the web to online school work to watching Blu Ray movies... Is there anyway to stress test it farther?

And thank you to all of you! I will give you all reps if we can figure this out!

Download and run the free version of SIW - System Information for Windows, it will tell you everything about your computer.

When you get the HDD model number, look it up on the WD site.

Check this article WD Caviar Green HDDs Suffer from a Critical Design Flaw
Check the model number first.

This is the link to the fix: WD Support / Downloads / SATA & SAS / WD RE2-GP

This may not solve your issues but is worth doing anyway.


Did you run the full WD Lifeguard test?

Did you run SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker as suggested by DeanP?

Yes, I ran both the quick and short WD Lifeguard test and I did also run the sfc/ scannow command.

Did you run the WD Lifeguard Extended Test?

Quote:
EXTENDED TEST - performs a Full Media Scan to detect bad sectors. Test may take several hours to complete depending on the size of the drive.


What were the results of the sfc/ scannow repair?
Did it find anything to repair?
Did it find something but, could not repair it?

My apologies. I did run the extended test. It came back clean. I ran sfc /scannow and it asked me to reboot. That was about it. Is there a log somewhere that sfc created? How do I find the results of it?
