Hi, I was wondering if i could get your guys' opinions? I restarted my computer this morning and it loaded up extremely sluggishly. No errors, and it did load eventually (about 5 minutes). Most programs are able to open, apart from (annoyingly) chrome. I just tried to do a disk scan on my drive but it was taking forever. After about 20 minutes it had got through about 5% of the sectors, so i started up HD Tune and ran a benchmark. For the first 50mb the read speed was 100kb/s before jumping back up to around 150mb/s. At around 250gb i got a disk read error from HD Tune, But smart only gives a warning about current pending sectors. I have my drive partitioned as a boot partition and a secondary one that i use for torrents. I'm running a scan of the second partition now to see if i can find anything and i will run one on the primary sector overnight as i am assuming it will take a good few hours. Have any of you experienced problems like this before? Any ideas what could be happening? Thanks.
