    Hi Guys,

    I have window 8.

    My computer is regularly crashing and getting the BSOD.
    Also some times it wont load up.

    This has only happened recently and is now really slow and I have no idea what the problem is.

    If you could help me get it back to how it was before that would be much appreciated

    I got the message Long Generic Fail

    Now is a good time to make sure you have a current backup of your important data.

    Unfortunately, your Seagate product has failed an important diagnostic test, possibly caused by problem sectors which are difficult to read. Seagate recommends that you run SeaTools for DOS, which has the ability to repair most problem sectors. SeaTools for DOS may be able to save you from the inconvenience and down time of exchanging the drive. For more information on this subject see our online FAQ:


    Also some applications are coming up with an End Process window.

    I have also had on 3 occasions my desktop background and all the icons disappear and become black
    my power button disappear
    Ctrl Alt Delete not work either

    It sounds like your computer's harddrive is dying or has died.

    You need to backup all data you wish to keep and order a replacement harddrive.
