Default Seagate hhd dead?

My internal Seagate hard drive now still runs. I can hear it and feel it making motions.

It all started one day when my seagate external drive is plugged into the computer and the computer starts up. Then it request for a scan the internal hdd because of bad shut down. I went with the scan to fix errors and at the final it says there are errors unable to fix due to it being corrupted.

At this time Windows do still start up normally. Within 8 min, the computer shuts off. And it can't get Windows back again. It says something about disk fail and system fail. You think my internal hdd dead?

(The external still works.)

From what you said, YES, it most definetly sounds as if your drive is going to fail shortly.

I would back up your data immediately .

And your saying you can hear the drive making unhealthy noise??

if you can hear it making noise thats 2X as bad, because its also a mechanical failure so you will have to replace the drive.

If you cant hear it, then i would perform a low level format, then i world format with NTFS and reinstall Windows.

Good luck bro
