My laptop hard drive , is acting all weird suddenly.
Whenever I open a video it will get stuck and then have to buffer , these videos aren't even HD , they are like 480p and around 100mb's in size and are on my HDD.
The HDD is a 500GB Hitachi 7mm laptop hdd.
If i put my old laptop HDD in my laptop everything works fine.
However something weird too , i could remove my current HDD and put it back in after using my old HDD and then it works fine for a couple of hours , before it will start freezing again , getting not responding on google chrome , and its just annoying.
Screen will freeze when its reading the video file off the HDD , becomes unusable.
Laptop specs are fairly new so its not them.
i5 3517u 2.6ghz
Do you think I should buy a new HDD , currently scanning the HDD for errors.
I just don't think the HDD should be acting in this way.
all videos are home movies on my HDD , no internet.
