    Ok, then BSOD. Anything to try before RMA?

      Installed Win-7600-74-bit and it worked fine ... for about 16 hours. Then it stalled and a BSOD happened (blue screen of death).

       

      Since then, I've switched back to another partition on another drive to see if it comes back to health. I've gotten about a dozen reports from Windows about imminent disk failure, backup immediately.

      Windows detected a hard disk problem. Backup your files immediately to prevent information loss.

      This was with the older firmware: 02G9. I updated to FW 02HD, but I'm still getting disk error messages.

       

      NewEgg has ok'ed an RMA with them paying shipping, but I thought I'd check for suggestions before shipping back for replacement.
