I believe Seagate has an utility you can use to check a drive. Also if the
drive was bought in the last couple of years and your motherboard supports
SMART monitoring I believe there is a port that can interface to the SMART
interface in your hardware.

problems.

To check if your system has SMART monitoring check your BIOS.
