my WD1002FAEX 1TB SATA 3 hard disk suddenly became very slow (like 30mins to boot Win7, before it was like 1min). It is completely unusable.
I am using a ASUS P6T Deluxe v2, Intel Core i7, 6GB RAM, 650W power supply, Geforce GTS250.
When I boot using a Linux live CD the computer is fast and responsive (not using the hardisk)
I can only hear the hard disk every second of so.
All the data is apparently there because Windows actually boots.
Is the hard disk "dead"? power issue?
