Hello.

For the 3rd time, I still get rid of my laptop's problems. I had ATAPI problem last time and at the end something went very bad and you recommended me that re-install the Windows. I did that and it worked for a month very good. But nowadays it still keeps doing weird things.

1) I cant enter to a folder on Desktop (E/A Gerätefehler - something like probably I/O Device error)
2) Sometimes there's a ticking sound from the harddrive (pretty sure from there)

3) Crystal disk info showed always from the first time that I had some yellow warning.
4) WD Diagnostics failed! And this the 2nd broken harddrive they have sent me.

p.s : I have some files in the minidump folder, I can show upload them if you want to.

It looks like the harddrive is broken but can it be something else?

p.p.s : My Atapi controller drivers are from 2006 and I uploaded an AMD controller drive yesterday and it just made everything worse.

Thanks.

3 indications the hard drive is defective. Replace it again.
