    There definitely there. Maybe your browser plugins are blocking them?
    I can't see them on any device, maybe because I don't have access to it because of rank or something

    Screenshots now fixed. They were linked from the VIP area that not all users are able to see. I just added them directly to the post, so you should see them now.

    I have a question about the right angled or so-called L-shaped (90 degree) sata 3 cables, does it matter if the 90-degree end goes into the motherboard and other end which is straight into the hard drive, and while mounting the hard drive should I use a screwdriver without a magnetic tip?

    I think neither of them matters.

    Alright, do you have any other tips on what to pay attention when mounting the hard drive, etc. ?

    The cable with the 90 degree end is typically attached to the motherboard end, but it doesn't matter. Use whatever is convenient. Some cables have no 90 degree end.

    I wouldn't worry about the screwdriver. Magnetics can help avoid losing a small screw down inside the case somewhere, which isn't pleasant. You might use thumbscrews instead if you have any on hand.

    You'll have to format the drive and give it a drive letter in Windows Disk Management. If you are obsessive, you can do a full format rather than a quick format.

    I'd likely run Crystal Disk Info and Crystal Disk Mark on the drive early on before you put a lot of data on it.....to confirm it performs within specs and is in fact a new drive in good working order. Make note of typical temperatures.

    I appreciate your post and I will do as you said, I'll let more people give their inputs & tips and I will close this topic in 12 hours from now.

    The device, \Device\Harddisk0\DR0, has a bad block.

    The above event appeared multiple times on the OP's Windows, but the following event did not appear.

    The IO operation at logical block address 0xxxxxxx for Disk 0 (PDO name: \Device\000000xx) failed due to a hardware error.

    The above event appeared multiple times on my Windows before I replaced my old HDD, which had no bad blocks at all. I still don't know what the hardware error was.

    I/O board of the HDD it self could have have just gone bad spitting errors occasionally, it happens.

    I found a similar opinion:

    "that specific error message means a physical failure on the PCB"
