Two years ago I bought a new computer. One year later, the hard drive failed. So I bought a new hard drive, and here I am a year later with another failed hard drive. It worked fine until recently when it began to restart at random times for what seemed like no reason. Whenever I started my computer, the first screen to appear said "There is a problem with your hard drive, please consult your troubleshooting manual. Press enter to continue." Then the computer would start up normally and work as if there was nothing wrong. After one of the random crashes I checked the system event log, which said it was caused by a bad sector on the hard drive. I didn't look into exactly what that meant, I just thought reformatting would fix it, but it didn't. After the format, I could not get windows to install. Then I found a program that was supposed to fix bad sectors. I ran the program and it concluded that the drive was error free and had been restored to it's factory condition. However, when I restarted the computer I still had the same problem. So here's my question: does anyone have any advice on how to fix this problem, and if not which brand would you suggest for my next hard drive (preferrably one that won't become a piece of shit less than a month after the warranty ends)?
