Hard Drive testing

  kjrider 19:35 27 Dec 10

I think my HD on my Christmas newbuild may be faulty.

Its a new seagate barracuda sata 500GB drive, and when I try to install windows XP after almost finishing the format, it says it cannot finish the format and the drive may be faulty.

Any good programs to test? The ones I have come across are for testing a formatted working hard drive.

If windows installation shows it might be faulty then send it back as faulty. Ask for a replacement.
