Bad sectors are usually the result of physical damage to the disk, so you're not going to be able to remove them easily. A full format *may* clear them, but I'd expect them to fail again.
If you run a scan disk it will mark them as bad so the OS shouldn't attempt to write to them again. It will also attempt to recover the data from the bad sector and copy it somewhere else on the drive.

Erreur F3-F000-0001


That error is a hardware error, either the recovery disc has errors or the hard drive has bad sectors. The bad sectors may be logical sectors that will prove OK if you run chkdsk/f and the boot sector may repair if you run the command 'fixboot'
Hope that helps.

Repair bad sector hard


BAD SECTORS
When a hard drive has bad read/write sectors it means the magnetic oxide layer on the disc platters are failing. Before you made an image of the hard drive you should have ran Error Check on the C Drive. This checks and locates the bad sectors and moves the data to an undamaged part of the disc platters and then locks out that bad sector so data cannot be written on the bad sector.
I recommend you do a fresh Windows install on your new hard drive to fix this problem and install the laptop's device drivers plus your programs and data before the hard disk fails completely.

Samsung r530 bad sector hard drive. Did not come with operating software disc.


Remove the HDD and test, replace if necessary. You can contact Samsung, with your laptop Serial Number, and purchase a Factory Recovery DVD. Or, you can buy a Windows Installation DVD and do a Fresh install on the new HDD.

My emachines keeps telling that my windows was instal wrong. Is not letting me delete programs or add programs at all is emachines E725. I need help asp plz.


Sounds like your hard drive may have developed bad sectors preventing your OS from working properly.Also you may need to install a fresh OS once the sectors are repaired but usually not.Hard Drive Regenerator is a good software for regenerating bad sectors,if they are repairable that is.Either way it sounds like a failed or failing hard drive.

TRYING TO DO A SYSTEM RECOVERY FROM DISKS. GETTING THIS MESAGE: IMAGE ERROR ENCOUNTERED X:\RECOVER\AIBRHO1A.BA\INSTALL>


There's either a problem with the discs themselves, dirty, scratched.

OR cd / dvd lens is dirty: Clean with dry q-tip

OR You've got a bad sector on the hard drive that is preventing restore.

Try restoring the computer with a new hard drive, that's usually it on older machines like yours ;)

How to remove bad sectors from hard disc


I have used Spinrite 6.0 with great success. I highly recommend it! It is an investment of about $80, but will repay itself many times if you are trying to recover data (which I have done from bad discs) or 'clean up' bad sectors permanently. It is the best program I have found for this, and I have tried many,
