the hDD is bad as vast do even 5 years old.  (common this) we replace it.

the smart test NEVER LIES TO YOU.

A bad HDD causes these  problems.

  1. a dead PC and OS dead.
  2. OS corrupted (endless random chaos or BSOD's
  3. your data is lost or corrupted, no or very soon or far far worse. it is a bad HDD after all.
NO warranty answers by me.
