Samsung Spinpoint F3 1TB. No other drives. I believe reaching 2.5 - 3 yrs old now.

Is there a tool I can use to troubleshoot my drive to see if it's not performing properly?

It's either the CPU or HDD, because when I view a media file such as a TV show during the lag, I get awful sound distortion, you can tell it is glitching, spiking severely, but temps look fine so it's definitely not a heat issue.
