Hard disk


if you are installing a dos based system thn dos formatting is very good

if you are going to use xp then make boot option in setup as bootable from cd rom
put a win xp setup cd in the cdrom drive
it will boot up saying press any key to continue , and follow the scren instructions
the whole process is that simple a hd can be formatted till bad sectors are not shown up upto 8 %. more thna 8& bad sectors cannot load windows, however dos can still be loaded and so also win me so it doesnot affect the hd
what affects is the jerks and voltage supply variations on the har d disk and some bad virus infections and the temperature the hd has ... always leep hd at a tem p lower than 37 degres c
use a fan to achieve this a 12 volt small fan mounted on the hd .

#1508 Bad directory buffer signature


Hi, if this is a fairly new installed XP you're probably better off: repartitioning, reformat and reinstall WinXP but this will delete all contents of the hard drive. If however there are a good number of critical/important files you would want to save/copy, there are two (2) ways of going about saving/copying those files but both involve access to a working computer. (1) remove your Travelstar 5K100 from the laptop and using a 44 to 40 pin adaptor, connect it to the working pc which should recognize it as another hd and therefore you can copy your files to that pc. There are many sites that explains how to do this. You can try Google search or http://search.techrepublic.com.com/search/laptop+hard+drive.html. (2) another method is to boot and run your OS from your cd. While this does not involve physically removing your laptop's hard disk, it might be a bit challenging preparing the bootable CD with an OS. The procedure is better explained at http://www.nu2.nu/pebuilder/. This will run your laptop although a bit slow however, you can access the hd and save it to a thumbdrive or if you have a lan to another computer. Please let me know if this works ok with you. Good luck and regards.
