Well, some of you may remember the thread I had going about my computer screwing up, right before this board got made (I don't feel like looking it up).
I think I've nailed the problem down, and it was one solution offered up in that thread. I'm pretty sure both my HDD's are on the way out, and were damaged by my little defective NIC when it crashed my system. Here lately, my lag has gotten even worse, there's no way for me to use my graphics card acceleration for anything (two separate vid cards; either missing textures or painting textures, though software mode works fine), I'm hearing a loud click every so often from one of the HDD's, and my icons are starting to get all screwy (some get unknown file icons, one folder has an .exe icon, etc.). I've even got a couple files that I can't delete now, because it says they're in use by the system, and I know for a fact they're not.
But how do I tell? I have a program called FreshDiagnose, but I can't get the registration information sent to my email, so I can't benchmark the drives (free program, but a pain in the ass to get the serial numbers for them). FreshDiagnose gives a "Health Percentage" of each HDD. One's at 49%, the other's at 46%, and the program says that's fine, and there is no loss of performance.
Are there any good programs out there to test out a HDD, and tell me if there are any hardware errors? Running scandisk doesn't do anything, and I'm sick of FD.
