Solved Can an over heating CPU cause HD corruption?

Specs: windows 7, haswell 3.7
I received an error "specified parameter incorrect error" Trying to go in to computer management. There were a few solution so I tried them all wit no luck. It occurred to me that my HD maybe current so I did a fresh install. Everything was find for 1 day and then I got that same error back. Upon a restart Windows want to check and fix a lot of HD problems.

When I opened my case back up I noticed this time the CPU fan was not running. This is a haswell 3.7 and I'm sure that thing was overheating. My question is, what is the likely hood a over heating CPU will corrupt a HD?

✔ Best Answer
An overheating CPU will not corrupt the HDD but the data, written to the HDD.
In that case, when restarting the computer, windows recognizes, that some data was not written correctly and tries to correct it.

As the name CPU (Central Processing Unit) indicates, the CPU give the command to the hardware, to write data to your HDD. There are some other chips involved, but CPU give the main command.

So if CPU is overheating, it doesn't realy know, what and when to do things and give some commands more or less randomely.

Sir ,

It Seems That Your Problem Is Bad Sector(s).
Download Manufacturer's HDD Diagnostic Program (Bootable CD/DVD From Official Site Only, Seagate, Western Digital, ...).
You Need Model of HDD. You Can Find It In System Setup Page(s) or Read Label of HDD.
Check HDD and Install Fresh Copy of OS (Windows/...).

Good Luck.
