Hello Guys

I recently formatted my laptop and installed again windows 7,the one that comes with the laptop.I had to do it because my second hard disk (the 500gb) was disconnecting everytime,before making a little noise and then getting disconnected.

Now seems like the same problem is coming back,not often as before but still,when i download something to my second hard disk or try to open a big folder I can hear it and it takes forever to open.I'm also getting the blue screen,my latop has crucial m4 ssd,what should I do?

I really don't know where to start.

Thanks

From your description, it sounds like your HDD may be failing. Do you observe any Disk Errors reported in the Windows System Event Log? As a precaution, I recommend backing up any important files on that drive.

Does a disk diagnostic utility report any problems with the HDD?
