is my hdd dying

i got this gtx 980 and i7 3770 , 8 gb ram and it stuttering like hell in aaa games, because of the old hdd i am sure,when i am playing it always gets to 100/100 and even when i start the pc it sucks as hell with a 100/100 usage, can it be fixed, i tried defragment, disk doctor, and in hd tune it says that my 250 gb hdd sector is damaged, btw it gets to 56 c heat.... so it's a new hdd or nothing ....right ?

  1. may be time to wipe and reload windows if you have not done it in awile. i would try reinstalling intel chipset drivers and try turning stuff off under windows startup see if it helps.

  4. For the motherboard -- but how your helper knows it's got an Intel chipset is beyond me when you gave no mobo details yet.Could just as well be AMD at this point.

    If you are getting bad sector errors, then it is a good bet that the drive is starting to die. Instead of wasting time with drivers and a reinstall, you may just want to shop for a new drive.

    Am I reading the post correctly that the HDD is 250GB in capacity? You can get a decent 1TB, maybe even 2TB for under $100 bucks from most stores that sell them, even Best Buy if you have to. Heck, you can get a 250GB SSD for around $100-$130 if you shop around. Either way you should see a performance boost with a new drive, especially with the SSD.
