Question about Samsung SpinPoint P80 SP0802N 80 GB Hard Drive
1 haard drive fail message 2 how to recover 0 teack bad 3 how can find which part problem on hard drvice
You can try various software diagnostic programs. Check Samsung's website for a download. Gibson Spinrite http://www.grc.com has a commercial package available. There are freeware/shareware diagnostics out there too. If the drive has an actual hardware failure, then the only option is replace the drive. There used to be drive repair centers (I've sent drives in for repair years ago), but the last time I checked, these seem to disappeared. Hope this helps, but frankly, many of these hard drive problems are non-repairable by us common users.

Most ACTUAL hard drive failures are fall into one of three categories: ? Read/write head failure ? On-board electronics failure ? Damaged or worn disk platter. If your hard drive was working then you experienced a hard drive error your only real chance of ?repair? is to format the drive from scratch and run chkdisk (or similar program) on it to identify and block out any bad areas on the hard drive platters. In the case of a physically damaged board some people have had some success swapping an IDENTICLE board from another working hard drive. Since you ruin a drive (unless its dead as well) to fix another that is only something you do to recover data, not fix the drive. The bad news is no home user has the skills, tools or clean room environment to successfully replace the heads or platters in a hard drive, assuming you could buy them. Typically posts that give bad news are marked poorly and the only reason I?m posting this is to try to save you some aggravation and time so be kind

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect your hard drive
Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA
the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them there probably old and faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electic extensions or just replace them they are probably faulty a computer needs its connections to have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error
