Question about Gateway Computers & Internet
I reformat my hard drive but whwn it start to load the disks it freez and stops and dose nothing
That is a sign of Hard Disk Failure or bad clusters due to inproper formating
Perform this tests to ascertain your Hard disk durability
1. Turn Off the computer
2. Restart it, Press F2 to go to the BIOS at the black screen when the PC comes up displaying the manufacturers name:
3. Goto the Advanced Menu or the Menu Option that displays your Drives.
4. On the drive that has the problem, select the option that performs a hard disk test.
This would take sometime and at the end, the result of the test would tell if your Hard disk is bad.
A second option is to use a reliable hard disk partition software like partition magic to reformat and repair bad clusters and damaged sectors in your harddisk
