Question about Acer Aspire 5000 Notebook
I have had this laptop for 3 years and it's been working fine until about 3 months ago. It started by unexpectedly shutting down and now it also freezes with increasing frequency.
When starting up, it always now defaults to a disk check which states that there are 12 bad sectors.
I've tried cleaning up / deleting all files, doing a defrag, and booting with the system recovery disk but to no avail.
What should I do?
The hard drives ready for failing, back up everything now to avoid loosing data, run chkdsk /f this command will scan the disk for any problems and try to fix any bad sectors, if this doesn't work i'd think about buying a new hard drive
