Windows 7: Radeon 5970 prevents the computer from booting from the first time

What purpose will the Zero Fill serve ? I am not sure I understand and I am really not willing to do it as I don't have a second drive to make a full backup.

I have a second partition with another fresh installation and yes, the result is the same when I run the test from there, as well.

I replaced the drive. All is well now.

Oh but try to see if you can save the HDD, since now you have a new HDD, you could try to wipe all data inside the old HDD and see if the problem still persist!

Actually, the old HDD is now gone. They offered me a 1.5 TB brand new Seagate Barracuda, and I had to only pay the difference. They said they will take care of the old drive and RMA it in the meantime, so I won't have to wait for over a week for a replacement to arrive.

This is as final as it gets. According to them, they will be able to exchange it for a new drive and I get to keep the upgraded one and the old one is none of my concern anymore.

Right now, the computer works perfectly, the new drive passes all tests and I can finally go to sleep without fear.

One last question - how do I change the name of my Windows installation in the boot manager ? Since they used Norton Ghost to copy all my data to the new drive, repairs were necessary to the boot manager and now my Windows installation appears as "Windows 7 Ultimate (Recovered)". I want to rename it to "Windows 7".

I am so sorry to disagree, but now system-wide lag occurs. Started happening maybe a couple of hours ago.

I am not sure what the cause is.

My CPU usage periodically spikes to 90% or so. Here are screenshots.

Here is a little more information, which may be related.

1. My information was transferred from the old disk to the new one with Norton Ghost. I am not sure if this is in any way related.

2. I am downloading a file at about 2 MegaBytes per second with uTorrent.

3. CPU temps are high, screenshot attached.

4. Explorer just crashed.

Also, congratulations on your new rank.

Edit - file downlad completed, system lag is kind of lower, but it has never happened before. I used to download files at almost 10 MB/s with minimal lag.

Sorry to ask silly questions, but last time I asked too late and my video card barely survived, and my HDD wasn't THAT lucky, not to mention it cost me a month and a half of headaches and inability to work and I deal with SEO, so it's important that my PC is healthy and working at all times.

I will try a defragmentation and post the results.

Edit 2 - Here is what Disk Defragmenter says. Only 3% fragmentation of my main partition, the one I am downloading to.

Edit 3 - I am running Disk Defragmenter as I am writing this and the system behaves very well, no lag, no nothing.
