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.

My acer aspire one has a hard drive failure on the following disks IDE/SATA.I diagnosed it then got the following report. HDD doesn't respond to system commands Boot sector damaged read time...


You need to format your hard disk. Please note that formatting will erase all you data from the hard disk and all the software including the Operating system.

If you have your OS master CD you can insert it in the cd/dvd drive and restart the laptop. This will detect the OS CD and try to install it. In the installation process there is an option "Format your hard drive". You should select that option. Then it will format, mark the bad sectors, create a new boot sector and install the OS. You will be just fine.

This drive is not formateted. bad sectar found


If you go ahead and format the hard drive, fromatting will lock out these bad sectors.
Bad sectors can indicate that the hard drive is wearing out especially if the number of bad sectors increase as you use the hard disk and if this is the case then back up your data regularly so you won't lose your data when this hard drives fail completely. I would consider retiring this hard drive ASAP.
Bad sectors are usually cause by the magnetic oxide layer on the platters wearing out or breaking down.

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.

Pxe-e61 media test failure. i have managed to get the computer into safe mode but will not run in normal mode why is this and how can i fix it?


This issue is often caused by either an incorrect setting in bios or a bad boot device, such as a bad hard disk drive. To resolve this issue, run scandisk to check if the hard drive have develop a bad sector. Double click mycomputer and right click drive C: and select properties,tools,check now and check the the two options in the check this option windows and reboot your computer. During the reboot of computer the scandisk is check your harddisk after the scandisk finished scanning you can read the result if you see the bad sector or cluster found it's mean that your hard drive is damage in you need to replace it to correct the error. But if no bad sector found try to remove the software or hardware that you installed before the problem is occured go to control panel then add and remove software. if you have a registry scanner software like pctools registry mechanic try to run it to fix the problem in the registry.

You cannot recover bad sectors. Your disc is damaged and the drive has removed the bad sectors from being writable. You need to replace your hard drive asap before it breaks entirely. You're going to lose all your remaining data on the disc if you do not back it up immediately. Good luck, Peter
