Windows 7: Seagate and the click of death

25 May 2012   #31

Windows 7 x64 / Windows Server 2008 / Linux (Redhat & Deb distros) / OS X / More

Well the only thing i could get Seatools to say, is the hard drive is taking a long time to scan. and gave me some possibilities of why it would be. One of them being that it may be overheating.

It wont even show that in the log. but im just going to call them and tell them what this thing is doing. I ran tests for 48 hours and it wont come up with anything. it only does the click of death when you do a mass transfer of data. or if its just sitting there doing nothing. but when i run tests, it just gets really hot and clicks a little bit, but keeps going until its done testing. then it dies.

I can't see there is much more you can do. The drive obviously needs replacing. Seagate should honour the warranty regardless of what Seatools says. When mine was clicking Seatools kept reporting back there was no problem even though it was taking forever to do a short test.

NSOD (No Screen Of Death) - just death
My system works great, except that if I leave it unattended for a few hours it goes to sleep then, after a while, powers off. (Maybe there actually is a BSOD but I'm never around to see it. The system's sleeping anyway and the monitor's shut off) When I restart I get the "your system crashed"...
