You may want to test your drive with a SMART diagnostic tool such as HD Sentinel:
This article describes the SMART attributes:
Look for reallocated and pending sectors.

I have a ST31000333AS 1T sata driver with firmware CC1H and I have some problems too...
First of all it sometimes starts clicking and them I have a blue screen and the pc shuts down.
Some particular times,for example when I run tools(SiSoftware Sandra) to see info of that driver It just freezes and then again I have the blue screen.
And finally I have just tried the HD sentinel and I saw that this driver has 93%health with only 50days of use instead of my old 5 year old ST3200822AS,which has 99%health with 645days of use.
I'm really afraid of losing my data...and I'm generally too disapointed by that drive...

I hope that you are right.I'm planning to have a surface test tonight because it takes quite long.Until then I have a question...
In my HDD's description it says that the acoustic level can be adjusted but when I try to do it,I always get an error "error occurred while setting acoustic level.The hard disk controller or its driver do not support this function"
Is there any other way to do it?

I didn't really undertand how to analyse it.So here you are...
I have renamed it to protect my serial number.
Here is my log file(S.M.A.R.T test always fails)--------------- SeaTools for Windows v188.8.131.52 ---------------
