How to verify if hard drive is failing - E420



As soon as I bought my 4 month old E420 it started acting weirdly. The screen would randomly freeze and I had gotten a few BSODs. Only after running the laptop in safe mode would I be able to even use it. Then a few weeks ago, I got a check disk screen and after it ran the laptop has been working fine since. I suspect that the hard drive may be failing. Is there a way to verify this?




EDIT: I have installed Win7 Pro 64-bit.

Download the HD Tune trial, go to the Health tab, and look for any highlighted entries.

Alternatively, you can use the ThinkVantage Toolbox to diagnose the drive.
