Is this a sign that my hard drive is dieing?

Recommended Posts

Hey guys! I've been having a problem with my secondary internal hard drive. its a WD 1.5tb. I only use to to store movies , music and pics. But whenever I watch a movie my computer stalls out for a good 2-3 minutes and the same thing happens when I play music. But If I move the files I'm going to use to my master drive everything plays fine. Is this a sign that my secondary drive is bad? This has been happening for awhile. Thanks guys!

It's just guessing without real information. You could download a freeware version of HDTune and check the SMART data. Also the Windows event viewer may have recorded a problem and offer some clues. Suspected HD problems can also be cables gone bad.
