  1. I have an Asus G502-VT-FY090T laptop. It has an 128gb SSD and a 1Tb HDD. Since yesterday i've been hearing a constant clicking noise coming from it like "tzzt tzzt tzt tzzzt tzt", i restarted it a couple of times and it won't stop. It happened once a couple of months ago but it was just a one time thing and had stopped since.. anyway this clicking isn't loud but every now and then a loud "CLUCK" noise is heard. I got suspicious that maybe it's the hard drive so i donwloaded both HD Tune and CrystalDiskInfo. both are giving me a C5 current pending sector warning on the HDD. (See attachments please) those numbers seem rather large but I wouldn't know, what's happening exactly and what should I do?
  2. Hey guys, I hava a serious problem. I copied files to my external hard drive and then a .txt file in the root directory on my hard drive was lost. I restarted my PC and now when I click on the F:\ drive on my Computer windows 7 wants to format my drive? My System: Windows 7 Pro x64 ASUS Rampage 2 Extreme (with the Microsoft Drivers because when I install the Drivers from the ASUS Homepage it don't see my external Drive) Western Digital WD30EZRX Hard Drive in a Fujitsu Siemens Storagebird 35ev840 USB2.0 external case. I had swapped the USB Connectors at the back of my PC but it doesn't work... I had read that non-UEFI Mainboards had problems with hard drives >2TB but until now I doesn't had problems. So what should I do to get access to my files? I have uploaded a screenshot that you can see my problem.

  4. TV not properly reading HDD

    Ok so, here is my situation; i have a external harddrive that i use to store all my movies and pictures and stuff in and it works perfectly fine on my PC, everything is foldered, organized and where its suppose to be, however, starts when i plug this harddrive to my TV (Sony XE8005 Android TV) and its really interesting, so... when i use VLC on my TV which i downloaded after i got the TV the HDD works perfectly fine everything is where its suppose to be but i cant use VLC all the time because VLC doesnt work well with HDR you see it HDR's the black bars on 21:9 content and its not a oled panel so those black bars with HDR on becomes basiclly grey so the TV's own player to the rescue yes? YES. the TV's own player works just fine with HDR local dimming keeps working and black bars are BLACK!!! BUT but but... the TV's own file explorer has a problem, it mixes everything up all the folders and whats inside them, for example; if i open movie A's folder i find movie Z inside... i think you get the idea so help please ::) TLDR; TV's file explorer mixes all the folders and content my otherwise perfectly fine working HDD.

  6. Hello, I was recently looking around for some hardware for a laptop and came across some relatively cheep SSD storage and RAM on a site called https://wish.com/ From what I know, wish is not always reliable and i would like to know if anyone had bought any hardware from this site and if so can you please comment on whether it is legitimate or not. Thanks, Harry
  7. Hello People! This is my first post on the forum, which I write because I couldn't find anyone asking a question one such as mine. I own a stationary PC and about 1 year ago I bought a new HDD - Toshiba P300 1TB. I was excited about getting a new HDD, because my previous drive WD5000AKS 500GB was years old already. But as soon as I installed Windows 10 on my P300, the computer has this issue: Everything seems fine, but from time to time - it can be between 10 minutes period, it can be between 1 hour period - when I click on something, so that computer performs some action (for example: open an .jpg file, load a page in a browser), the computer freezes for a moment - usually 1 minute max. During freeze I can move my mouse, hide browser pages and folder windows, and click on things, but it will still only show "loading wheel" near my mouse pointer for a period of about 1 minute. And it's really frustrating, because it's a new HDD and it works worse than my previous years old HDD. I didn't have this issue with my previous HDD when running Windows 10. Maybe You Guys have some solution or explanation, why it may be so?

  9. Hi I have a sabrent ec-hdfn which I have used to make hdd clones in the past. Currently I am trying to make a clone of my father's HDD to a new SSD; as the life of his HDD is currently dwindling. For whatever reason I can't seem to get the cloning process to start, so I'm hoping someone may have some insight on this issue. I've Googled around a little with no success (mostly product reviews how to forum posts and where to buy results is what comes up). I also tried to contact the company, however, they did not answer (will try again tomorrow). If anyone can point me in the right direction it would be much appreciated.

  11. Is there any way (other than hunting down other R6 owners) to get additional HDD/SSD trays for Define R6? R6 is capable of 11x 3.5" and 4x 2.5" disks. But package includes only 6x 3.5" trays and 2x 2.5". It sucks. Especially considering R5 natively supported 8x 3.5" or 10x with simple generic 5" -> 3.5" adapter available everywhere.
  12. Click on button. PC trurns on, no display out put, 5-10 seconds later, PC shuts off and restarts and repeats. No bleeps. HDD spins up and fans do to. Please help i can find out whats wrong.
  13. So, I was using my laptop normally, when all of a sudden I get the Windows blue screen for a split second, and then the computer restarted. When it did, it wasn't detecting the SSD. From that moment, it never detected any kind of SATA drive (unless I use a USB adapter). I even tried a mSATA SSD to see if it worked. NOTHING. Please help.
  14. Rate my gaming setup

  15. I currently have a Samsung 850 pro 512gb, i got it for 115 USD and planning to sell it for 150 USD. I plan on getting any 512gb m.2 i can get for 150 USD. I plan to use it for my laptop. My current config is Samsung 128gb m.2 evo, 512gb pro + 1TB HDD 2.5. My concern is that it gets around 50-55C hot when installing files because its sitting literally next to the 2.5 HDD . Which also gets the same temps, but during gaming its around 40-45C on both drives. Do you think I should go for a cheaper m.2?
  16. So I used to use my laptop as an alarm clock, and one morning as the alarm app started ringing the pc froze and I had no other chance than to force shutdown by holding the power button. But when I tried restarting it back up it failed to boot into windows and when I opened up my bios the hard drive was shown as "not present" I opened up the back and I can hear the hard disk spinning up on starting and can also hear the arm moving around so I know it's not dead and I tried reconnecting the cables, but what is the problem? There are no weird noises from the hdd it sounds just like it used to. Laptop: Toshiba satellite M50D-A-10X Hard drive: Seagate mobile hdd 1tb st1000lm035 (aftermarket, bought a year ago as the old one broke by the laptop falling off a coffee table)
  17. I dropped my laptop onto concrete while it was on. It was okay when I picked it up and didn't see any problems but then it started acting funny about 5 minutes in. Restarted and it booted alright but then starting having weird performance I hadn't seen before right as it started going. Is there a way I can check it to see in what condition it is before I try to clone the partition? I have a desktop with Lubuntu and Windows 10 but please spare me from using Windows 10. The PC has an athlon x2 with 2GB of RAM and Windows is a nightmare. HDD in question I have listed on my profile. Please help y'all I'm buying an SSD quick from craigslist under $50 and I need my laptop back ASAP.
  18. Hi, I am going to build a new pc with around 2500$ budget and I am getting a 4tb hdd WD blue and 500gb ssd. My plan is to use the ssd for os + multiplayer games and the hdd for singleplayers games. So is it necessary for me to partition my 4 tb hdd?
  19. Hey guys, I'm thinking on switching cases to a louque ghost S1 (once it comes out of course http://louqe.com/), but I have and SFX-L PSU already and that size would block the hdd bay, so I was thinking just to dremel a notch through the I/O shield to take the necessary cables outside the case and call it a day, or if you guys have a better solution that wouldn't mess with the speeds of the drive, or should I just get and regular sfx PSU? Also I want to add a tophat for fans so and hdd there wouldn't work for me
  20. Are SSDs required?

    So I'm building a computer and I currently don't have an SSD to put into it. So I'm wondering, if I have an HDD do I have to put in an SSD as well or does it only work if you have both? I know that everyone recommends that you install your OS onto an SSD so that it runs better, but I just can't afford an SSD right now, they're too expsensive.
  21. hi, I have some problems with my new build. I need my SSD + HDD to be recognized. I placed my HDD in SATA3_0 connector on my motherboard and booted into UEFI. The disk had been recognized. Then, I added my M2 SSD and this time only the M2 showed up. I remembered that this is because M2_1 and SATA3_0 / SATA3_1 share the same bus and cannot be used at the same time. I fixed it but, Regardless, I cannot make both disks show up, should I not connect SSD into M2_1 and HDD into SATA3_2??? The motherboard is a asrock z370 extreme4. M2_2 is not populated. thank you for your help
  22. I just got a Dell 7577 gaming laptop with an i7, 1060, 16gb of memory and two drives a 256gb ssd and a 1tb hard drive. The battery life isn't too great and the weight is a little much. I was wondering whether upgrading that HDD to an SSD would help my battery life, I am not too much worried about speed since this storage is for mass storage and not for speed. I looked around the internet but found no actual numbers on whether this would help much. If you have a similar experience, or if you are wondering the same thing I am right now, come on down to the comment section to talk about this. If no one can find a definite answer, Linus if you are reading this can you help us out here??? Thanks, zornzilla
  23. So I'm stuck with a 120GB SSD right now.As you may suspect,it's storage did not suffice.So since SSD's are expensive and low storage a hard drive is what I'm looking for. So far the HDD I've seen would do me right is the WD Black 1TB.It has 7200rpm it's SATA 3 and overall WD Blacks are meant for gaming.But I'm wondering;is it really necessary?What is all I need for gaming?Would something cheaper be enough?Like maybe a WD Blue or some Seagate?
  24. I recently came over a small problem with a drive of mine. smart settings told me my video game hdd's about to fail. I've tried searching around but haven't been able to find any answers on how to disable smart. If there are solutions, they're for older versions of different bioses than what I've got (I think). The drive's a Toshiba DT01ACA100. So, in short; is there a way for me to disable the smart settings on my build? Putting this here if it helps: i5-6600k cpu z-170a motherboard Edit: The drive that's failing is purely dedicated to games. Nothing important
  25. I've just completed my first homebuilt PC but I'm having an issue with my HDD which hopefully someone can help with. I have my boot drive working fine with my OS installed on it. In addition to this I have installed an HDD for more storage space. But I can't seem to get into this drive from Windows. It is recognised in the BIOS. It was listed there when I went in to set boot priority. But in Windows it doesn't show up. The drive is a Seagate 3tb HDD. And, interestingly, when I hook it up externally to the USB port on my Google Pixelbook it is recognised. I can see all the files I have on there and access them. Is there something I'm doing wrong here?
