Hello,

Did you try the smartmontools?

This will give you info what is wrong with the harddisk.
It can be things like bad sectors that have been replaced automaticaly (there are a limited amount of replacement sectors), seek time, startup time.

Hi guys; update on the HDD issue; well i change to another Sata HDD,installed Win 7 and then upgraded to win 10 TP and all good,
i really don't like to deal with software or hardware Issues,too much to my head,i always like to go the easier route;
on the other HDD that had the HDD Error failing, i installed Ubuntu14.04 and no error notifications,i keep it as spare,in case i'm not given a free Win 10 RTM.
