Recently, my desktop computer is acting up, there was a few BSODs a couples of days ago..
In addition, explorer.exe, regedit,exe, control panel fails to start. I thought my OS was corrupted since it BSOD and had a couple of write access violation on some of the processes
I went ahead to reformat (As system restore didn't work, everytime I did a system restore, the next day I boot up all my essential process fails again and I have to do another restore which was really getting annoying
After I formatted, i encountered another BSOD with something cache manager and then it restarted
I checked my RAM with the diagnostic tool in windows 7 recovery console and it appears to be fine
I also ran chkdsk /F which fixed a couple of errors
What I want to know is, how do I check for bad sectors on my HDD.. I think its dying but I am unsure and I need sufficient proof before I can send it for a warranty repair..
