"surface test failure,HD about to fail?

In that case, you hard drive is no longer reliable. And you mentioned that the source of crashing your system....And your are a heavy user you need a heavy duty system!!!

So, if you want a system that run smoothly,, try to replace the source of crash..

Here in our cafe, we don't rely on Maxtorr, we used Seagate, i dont know if there is a motherboard issue there but all of our Maxtorr drive last about maximum of 6 months compare to Seagate that give a good sign in our business, Our motherboard here is Soltek and Epox.
