    eh that's bad, I can just buy another compatible HDD and have it replaced?
    This laptop is not more than 3 years old (bought), is that the lifetime of a HDD?
    I will still run the memtest today though and post the results.

    Thanks for the help.

    Yes, but you'll need a 2.5" HDD because a 3.5" won't fit.

    The lifetime of a HDD varies a lot, but generally it can be used for some years.

    I am unable to boot with memtest86+, I tried burning the iso to a CD and using the installer on a USB and i'm only getting "operating system not found"
    I changed the BIOS setting after the first attempt: boot from external drive -> enable
    and set external drive priority the highest
    Still the same results.
    I think I won't run the memtest86+.

    I'll save up for a 1TB+ SSD because I don't want to downgrade in storage space.
    A one like this will be fine?
    Amazon.com: Intel DC S3500 2.5'' 1.2TB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) SSDSC2BB012T401: Computers & Accessories
    if so, any similar cheaper ones?
    if not, which do you recommend?

    Thank you for the help.

    I would recommend this one Amazon.com: Samsung 850 EVO 1TB 2.5-Inch SATA III Internal SSD (MZ-75E1T0B/AM): Computers & Accessories because it looks overall to be a great SSD (and receives a 9/10 score of the #1 tech site in my country).

    HDD repaired?


    Thank you for your help guys.

    It seems like my HDD fixed itself. I'm not getting any BSODs anymore.
    After 2 event entries my BSODs seems to have stopped.2/26/2017 -> The file system structure on volume C: has now been repaired.

    2/26/2017 -> Volume C: (\Device\HarddiskVolume5) is healthy. No action is needed.

    The next day 2/27/2017 I had another event entry where it gave me the error that the Hard disk has a bad block, but I have not been getting any BSODs since 2/26/2017.
    I have no other disk related error in my event viewer except from today.
    3/4/2017 -> The driver detected a controller error on \Device\Harddisk1\DR2.
    Is this critical? What can I do about this.

    I'm still saving up for an SSD, but if this "self-repair" is a temporary fix for an HDD maybe it can help others?
    Not sure how it did it because I have not run any repairing tools other than chkdsk, but chkdsk didn't help in the past.

    Thank you and may this help others with a failing HDD

    Windows has mechanisms to repair detected corruptions by itself. It, however, cannot do much more than that, so anyone else reading this should get prepared for replacement.
