My system has passed with flying colors for over two years. I rank in the top 30% of similar computers. Nothing has changed on my system over the past six months. I installed two new 500 GB W.D. Caviar Internal HDD/s.

 

Those tested in the top 10% for the last 3 months. Now the test results show the same HDD/s testing in the lower 5%. That doesn't make any sense. Something has change with the ActivX download.

 

Who else is discovering their HDD is now appearing at a lower rating than it "should be" ?

Please post an OverDrive link so that we can see what is taking place on your computer.

 

If you need help, there is a tutorial here:

I ran a complete system clean-up after posting the two results below, just to make sure both HDD/s were defragged, ran surface analysis, ran other diagnostics as well. All things are "good-to-go", green light on all devices and drivers. Still I get a low HDD score:

 

Most current test after editing:

Here is the normal testing I have been receiving, with or without Passwords enabled.

This is the one I did today "twice" that shows a very low score on my HDD:

I would first try updating the controller driver. How are those drives connected? If they are hooked directly to a SATA port, then update the SATA driver. If they are using a SATA to IDE adapter, then update the IDE controllers. The IDE controllers are easy, just uninstall them through the device manager and reboot and Windows will install new ones. The SATA drivers most likely will need to be downloaded and installed.
