Windows 7: Frequent Freezes, BSOD, Disk Check auto cancels, and Hard Disk Errors

Frequent Freezes, BSOD, Disk Check auto cancels, and Hard Disk Errors

Hello!

So I recently installed Windows 7 Home Premium on an Acer Aspire 5349. I've been having a bunch of issues with it since the install.

Firstly, When I boot, it takes me to the "Disk Check" screen and tells me that one of my disks needs to be checked for consistency. However, the disk in question isn't something like "C:" or "D:" it's "\\?\volume{c4afec15-cb60-11e4-9583-806e6f6e6963}". The disk check also automatically cancels. It doesn't prompt me with the usual " Press any button to stop the disk check" option, just straight to " Disk check has been cancelled"

When I eventually get to the desktop, I get the screen " Windows detected a hard disk problem ". I look at the details and I'm told that my C:\ drive has been reporting failures. When I check the status of the disk via the Disk Management tool I'm told that all my partitions are healthy.

When I actually use the laptop, it's very slow and frequently freezes. It takes a while to catch back up and sometimes these freezes lead to a BSOD. The BSOD message was KERNEL_DATA_INPAGE_ERROR. I checked the event viewer and it also seemed that before certain crashes I would have driver controller error on an IDE Port. I've attached a picture of the disk check screen, event viewer, and memory dump. I apologize about the quality of the pictures, I couldn't screenshot the images on the actual laptop as it was freezing and crashing too often.

I really hope this isn't a problem with the hardware itself, and thank you to anyone that can help me out with this problem.

Ensure all data is backed up, then run the DOS version of the LONG test of SeaTools, and report the result:

I ran the test as instructed, after about two hours the test had not made any progress from what I can tell. The mouse still moves so it hasn't froze but the text on the screen has not changed. I waited even longer and still no change. I've linked the image so you can see what the results were.

Based on that, I would replace the disk immediately.
