If its not under warranty and you still want to use it, format the drive using NTFS. Use a QUICK FORMAT. NTFS has a property of isolating bad sectors so that it wont cause a problem like you had.
It is possible to fotmat it from Windows XP CD on booting from it, if you have only one drive. Also, you cando it from other computer or your own if you have 2 HDDs. Remember to backup all your required data before this.

You must have gotten the serial number wrong. "Invalid warranty", which is what the Seagate warranty checker gives you, does not mean out of warranty, it just means it was unable to recognize any drive with that model and that serial number. You either got the wrong model and the right serial number (unlikely as the model number you wrote is a real one) or you got the right model and the wrong serial number.

No it's not repairable. Copy any data you want from it to another drive, cd, dvd, etc. Go to www.seagate.com and fill out a warranty RMA form. If it's warranty you'll get a new one from Seagate

there was wrong in the set up of jumper in your 80gb hdd. Look closely to the 80gb harddrive, in between the ide cable terminal and the power supply connector you will see 8pin terminals paired together and a jumper use to short the paired terminals. It is most likely that the jumper was configure to detect your hdd as master. If the ide cable you use for the 80gb hdd was also use for the dvd/cdrom drive then it will conflict with it if both jumper setting was set to master. See the description of jumper settings in the sticker of the hdd. Position the jumper to slave.

Reboot your system again and see if the 80gb finally appear in your system. When system boot upon detection of hdd, the primary master should be 250gb while your primary/secondary slave will be read your 80gb hard disk.

How to find my hdd warranty??


If you want to know the warranty of your hdd then click the below link and fill the details and check your warranty

How To Find Model and Serial Numbers
If your drive is connected to your computer: Seagate has created a very simple tool that will tell you the serial number and the model number of any and all Seagate and Maxtor-brand drives connected in or to your computer. Use the DriveDetect.exe method to find both numbers.
You can also use SeaTools to display each number.
(See below if you have a Mac computer.)
If your drive is not connected to your computer: See the flash-based Serial Number locator tool to find your serial number and model number (and/or occasionally the serial number and the part number) on the drive label.

Please rate me if this solution works for you

I have a laptop with HDD Seagate 160 GB. Yesterday I can't access my Windows anymore then I use a CD bootloader and check the HDD using HDDTune.Here's the result:...


You can run chkdsk /r from recovery console, it will mark the bad sectors so that the computer wont try to use them. If you bought the drive separate from the laptop you have a 3 or 4 year warranty at seagate. They will replace the drive for free pretty painlessly.

you can check warranty here: http://support.seagate.com/customer/warranty_validation.jsp?form=0

I gotta tell you, don't put files on there that you need to keep, and you would be lucky to get another week out of that drive. Check ebay, you should be able to get a 20G drive for around $10-20 to keep it running until you get a bigger drive.

Seagate sata hdd error


Quick format removes files from the partition, but does not scan the disk for bad sectors, while a normal format does that. That's why the formatting takes so much longer.
You should definitely check your drive for bad sectors by issuing "chkdsk /r" in the command line, which scans for and attempts the recovery of bad sectors.

If there is a bad sector somewhere, your system might crash at any time and it might be at a very inconvenient moment.
If you find bad sectors, you should consider replacing the drive

Seagate SATA Baracuda 160 GB harddrive crashed


I've found this to just be the nature of hard drives. You never really can trust them, thats why you always need a backup. Maybe look into a fault tollerant RAID solution if it's really important (kinda expensive)

Bad sectors removal and formating Seagate 80 GB


I suggest puting your hdd on another computer, full format it again, and scan it for bad sectors.Also, searching for a program that repairs bad HDD sectors, the windows default erros scan could not be very helpful if there are many bad sectors.

SATA 80GB Seagate HDD


When your 80GB SATA Seagate HDD complains of bad sectors while booting, this is a sign of a failing hard drive. Today's hard drives will actually self-correct a certain amount of bad sectors before you get any kind of error message. If you are getting "bad sector" errors, this is because the drive has so many problems that it can no longer self-repair. You asked if this may have happened because you have formatted the drive many times. No, bad sectors was not caused by formatting. Your drive did not become "dead slow" because of the formatting. It became slow because your cpu now has to do much more processing to "work around" the bad sectors on the drive. You also asked if you could recover your hard drive to normal state. Please understand that once a drive shows bad sectors, it will not be long before the drive fails completely, at which point you will no longer be able to access anything at all on the drive. No, this drive cannot be recovered. Instead, you should save all the data you can from this drive, and you should do this as soon as possible, before it fails altogether.
