I think something is wrong with my hard drive

Im using a BOF pc which I bought last year it has been working fine till now. One month ago or so it started to lag more and more and yesterday it didnt want to boot up and it self repaired after some time but it still lags and i tried to reset it and i got a blue screen with Stop code: MEMORY_MANAGMENT. And after that im now currently stuck on a screen with a windows logo And text below that says: "Scanning And repairing drive (C:): 6% complete". The Pc isnt even 1 year old so I don't really know what caused this. Did anyone have the same problem and if so how did you fix it?

My Pc specs:

i5 2.8 - 3.5Ghz
8GB Ram
1TB HDD
Gigabyte mother board (I forgot the model number)
1050ti 4GB phoenix graphics card
..

What are the SMART values in your Speccy report?

If it's still under warranty ask the seller what they want to do.

Update

So I ended up reinstalling windows on my SSD. Windows boots up pretty fast now but my D: disk (HDD) was always at 100% usage I searched on google on how to fix it and I found out I need to go to services.msc and disable "Windows Search" ( I didn't find superfetch), so after I did that the disk usage went down to 0% - 2% but whenever I try to open any application from my D: drive the disk usage goes to 100% and everything starts lagging and stop responding. Any solution?

Note: I didn't format the disk when I reinstalled windows.

Still need those SMART VALUES

In reply to: Update

Especially the 01 and 07 but I'd like to see them all. This issue is typical when the SMART VALUES are showing issues with the drive.

Not to worry you

But Seagates show up too often along with very old drives.

A Speccy reading. For the report at EsOOv1q5fhSFhMKPRLHfoAK

1, The Toshiba 01 and 05 values put this drive into the failing category. It has not failed yet but you should see nearly hard to find delays, freezes and BSODs with this drive connected.

2. To ease the work on the drives be sure to turn the following off.

The Speccy is pretty clean except for item 1 which matches nicely with your complaint. See if Toshiba has a drive health check to see if they will replace it gratis.
