Recently, I got a Western Digital WD15EADS 1.5 tb hard drive. It works alright except for the fact that sometimes, my computer freezes. This never happened before I installed the hard drive in. Is there anyone out there with a similar experience with this hard drive and does anyone know a way to fix this?

I don't have experience with your particular drive, but I once had a WD 500gbs which was brand new and it aleady had bad sectors. My computer would intermittently show problems like yours. The only solution was to RMA the drive and get a replacement Seagate that I should have bought in the first place! LOL, I always buy Seagate but wanted to try WD again as it was relatively cheaper. WD... never again!

At this point in time, it would be a good idea to backup any important data you have on your computer before the drive fails. I recommend you RMA that drive if you still can or return it to WD for a replacement. I'm sure it still has warranty since you just got it.

Yea, I wanted to get the Seagate Barracuda but my friends all said WD was reliable and better so I got the WD.
I'll run a check right now on the harddrive and see if it's damaged. Thank you for the reply.
