Question about Dell Dimension E521 PC Desktop
We purchased a DELL Dimension E521 around 2007 and now am on 3rd hard drive. Each time I install a new one, it works for a little while and then suddenly develops bad sectors or unreadable area.
What is going on here???
Hard to believe I can get three bad hard drives in a row in under 2 years.
Hard to believe but this can be common depending on the manufacturer of the hard drive as some are not that good at all, some Maxtor's for example.
The best hard drives you can buy at the moment are Western Digital and Seagate, these drives come with 3 - 5 years guarantee so if they develop bad sectors they will replace the the drives free.
The best way to look after your drives is to perform a sector check once a month and keep your internet cache cleared, use a program called Ccleaner to clear the cache and temp files and also keep the registry clean.
I would also recommend you defragment your drive as soon as you have installed a clean operating system or defrag once a month too, that way you will get your full life from the hard drive.
