Hi,

Can somebody tell me how can I detect if my HDD is going to die?

The drive isnt making any sound, nor is it slow and BIOS is detecting it.

But at times, PC just freezes and the hard drive indicator light is off. I have to hard boot the system then.

I am getting various BSoDs and the following Disk error was seen in the Event Viewer:

An error was detected on device \Device\Harddisk0\D during a paging operation.

Following are the Stop Error Codes:
1.) 0X0000008E
2.) 0X000000C5
3.) 0X00000050

Any ideas, what these errors are indicating?

Regards,
Yossi:confused:

Go to the drive manufacturers site and download and run their diagnostic utility.
