Detecting and repairing disk errors You can use the Error-checking tool to check for file system errors and bad sectors on your hard disk. Open My Computer, and then select the local disk you want to check. On the File menu,Right click>> click Properties. On the Tools tab, under Error-checking, click Check Now. Under Check disk options, select the Scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors check box. Notes To open My Computer, click Start, and then click My Computer. All files must be closed for this process to run. If the volume is currently in use, a message box will appear prompting you to indicate whether or not you want to reschedule the disk checking for the next time you restart your system. Then, the next time you restart your system, disk checking will run. Your volume will not be available to perform other tasks while this process is running. If your volume is formatted as NTFS, Windows automatically logs all file transactions, replaces bad clusters, and stores copies of key information for all files on the NTFS volume.


thanks.

A disk read error occurred, press ctrl+alt+del is showing when I open my laptop, please help...iTS the same problem even if i press ctrl+alt+del. thanks!


1. It is possible that your hard drive is faulty and have bad sectors or unable to read due to cable error or motherboard.
2. Try to re-seat the hard disk and if that doesn't work go to repair shop and get it checked, if problem is found ask them to recover the data if you need it and if possible.
3. Get a new hard drive.

I have tested several programs, but the program below, just really worked for...


Let's try to explain the question that grinds us all when in cams about the hard disk. Can we actually repair a bad block? Before of the answer you must find some information about what is a hard disk, how does it work, what are bad blocks. After that you must identify them because you will need the exact location of the affected sectors. After you have done that you must run a few steps:
- before you try to resolve the problem with the bad sector you must extract the data that was written to that block. To do this you must run a Recovery program that you can find freeware on the net.
- bad sectors are unreadable parts on your hard disk but the nature of them must not be always physically and that part of the platens to be destroyed. The bad sectors can be simulated by some programs. This means that some programs installed on your computer can interrupt the reading process on to another segment of the platens. That is in the most happier cases but the chances that the bad sectors are cause by this is less then 10 percent. In this case is difficult to resolve the problem because even the Scandisk or other identification programs used to discover bad blocks will give a rapport that nothing is wrong with your hard disk. The best way is to uninstall the latest programs applied to the computer.
- lets supposed that you have a 20 gigabits partition on your hard disk that has bad blocks. After the identification program it will indicate you where are the blocks situated on the partition. So this way you can isolate them in to another partition that you must never use again. Another scenario can be created and the bad sectors can be at the beginning of the partition in the middle of it and at the end of the partition. Know it's a little bit tricky because you can't just go on and create three new partitions to eliminate the bad sectors from use. In this case most of the new hard disk has a spare space available just for this type of scenarios. You must access the CASH memory of the hard disk and indicates to the hard disk that instead of writing down on the effected blocks it must write to the spare blocks.
- another to restore the hard disk is to use the low level format option. Many of you think that low level format is a program. Wrong, the low level format option is set for any BIOS and can be easily use if you know some command line programming. The low level format can take to be complete a very long period of time but in the most cases we can obtain marvelous results. Actually the low level option takes every cluster of the hard disk and identifies them again (throw a thermal process) and writes down on the memory of the hard disk what sectors can be written and witch blocks are un-writable. This procedure is the best that can be because it will need no effort from your side to try and avoid the bad blocks that already exists and the hard disk itself know where the bad blocks are.
In conclusion the bad blocks can't be fixed. The problem is a permanent one and we can only try to use the hard disk until it is broken down for good. But if you are having financial problem this is a best way to keep going with your old hard disk.

How to use the disk error checking utility...


As you use your hard drive, it can develop bad sectors. Bad sectors slow down hard disk performance and sometimes make data writing (such as file saving) difficult, or even impossible. The Error Checking utility scans the hard drive for bad sectors, and scans for file system errors to see whether certain files or folders are misplaced.If you use your computer daily, you should run this utility once a week to help prevent data loss.

  1. Close all open files.
  2. Click Start, and then click My Computer.
  3. In the My Computer window, right-click the hard disk you want to search for bad sectors, and then click Properties.
  4. In the Properties dialog box, click the Tools tab.
  5. Click the Check Now button.
  6. In the Check Disk dialog box (called Error-checking in Windows 7), select the Scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors check box, and then click Start.
  • If bad sectors are found, choose to fix them.
  • Tip: Only select the "Automatically fix file system errors" check box if you think that your disk contains bad sectors.

    My computer HDD have bad sactors please help to remove this on


    When a hard disk has bad sectors, these sectors can be fixed by running check disk. This is a temporary fix as the hard disk is nearly worn out and it will get more bad sectors and evenually the hard disk will fail completely.
    Bad sectors occur when the magnetic oxide on the disk platters is worn out and data cannot be written or read from these sectors.
    To run check disk click Start - My Computer - right click on C Drive and click on Properties - click on Tools tab - then Check Now in Error Checking
    I suggest once this has been done, you back up your data and purchase a new hard disk ready to install Windows etc. when the hard disk fails completely. You may want to install a new hard drive before the old hard drive fails completely.

    My lap top is showing a disk read error occured it says press ctrl+alt+del to reset but even after i do it nothing happened it goeg to the same thing back please help


    It appears that the either the boot sector of the hard drive is bad or the hard drive itself is bad. If you created a restore/recovery disk try using the restore disks to restore or recover the hard drive. If you have a bad boot sector, the recovery will happen, if the hard drive is bad then it will say that there is a problem accessing the hard drive or it will say "no hard drive found". Then you need to replace the hard drive with a new one.
    There are other methods used to check it but experts with knowledge of MS DOS can do it. Let me know if this helps.

    I have bad sectors in my hard disk what should can i do?


    There is nothing you can do about bad sectors. The Hard Drive itself, with its associated electronics, automatically maps these bad sectors and doesn't use them any more. So, the answer to your question is "NOTHING". Bad sectors may eventually make your Hard Drive unusable, and if your bad sector count is growing quickly it's time to do a complete backup and replace the drive.

    How do I know that my hard disk has bad sectors?


    you can download ubcd, or minipe, and burn them to a cd, if you have another computer, then insert the cd of your choice (minipe is a bit easier), minipe has a start menu similar to the normal windows start menu, somewhere in that menu, there should be a chkdsk, or check disk utility, you would want to run that, and choose yes when it asks if you want to check for bad sectors

    Hard disk drive is an integral part of every computer. It stores all your information. One of the most prevalent defects of hard drives is bad sectors on the disk surface.

As a result of bad sectors you may have difficulties to read and copy data from your disk, your operating system becomes unstable and finally your computer may unable to boot altogether.

    When a hard drive is damaged with bad sectors, the disk not only becomes unfit for use, but also you risk losing information stored on it. The HDD Regenerator can repair damaged hard disks without affecting or changing existing data. As a result, previously unreadable and inaccessible information is restored.

    ths is the software

    A powerful hard disk tool that can detect and repair physical bad sectors on a hard disk drive surface and regenerate hard disk.
