Hi Tripper2,

Welcome to SevenForums!

Your System Specs don't include your HDD type/size, etc.

Test Hard Drive for what?

System/file errors?
From Administrative CMD sfc /scannow

Bad sectors, orphaned files, indices, etc.
From Administrative CMD chkdsk /r

Orphaned files, indices, etc.
From Administrative CMD chkdsk /f

Overall hard drive health?
