Default CompareExchange128??

Hi again, Tried to put in Windows 10 64 bit and it stopped with a warning "compareExchange128". Its my harddrive. Not sure why its a sata1 250 gig. 7200rpm. Seagate Barracuda. Is there a program i can use to see if it is really my hard drive going bad or something else? That drive is only 2 years old! Wouldn't think it would go bad that quick. My backup drive is 5 years old same drive specs but a ide type. Any ideas or have you ever seen the error i got? I redid my computer index on it and it came up with index number of 58. Program compatibility said no problems with windows 10 install.

I've never heard of that code error "Compare Exchange 128" before..

But to check the drive, I would go to the Seagate website and download their program to diagnose the HHD to see if it's bad.
