Question about Seagate 80GB Barracuda 7200.9 SATA s - 8MB Cache (5-pack) 80 GB IDE Hard Drive

1 Answer

Corrupted Program Hi Computer Experts! Good day! I have a Desktop PC with a 2.1Ghz AMD Athlon processor, a SATA ready motherboard with an 80Mb Seagate SATA Hard drive. Problem is my brother accidentally bumps the CPU tower, when he opens it, after the windowsXp welcome screen, a blue screen appears states bad_pool_caller, then it automatically shuts down after a few seconds, this cycle continuous that it goes shutting down as we open. I tried to fix it through my computer knowledge, as a tried to reformat my SATA hard drive but It can?t detect on the startup screen as well as in the BIOS setup. When I tab in the SATA RAID BIOS setup there appears a notice: ?The number of disks is not adequate to create a RAID!!!? What does this mean? I don?t have enough knowledge with SATA/RAID, Is my SATA disk corrupted? How can I just disable SATA controller and just used IDE channel. Please give me an option or advice. It will be greatly acknowledged! Thank you in advance! Jeff:// (Philippines)

Hi,
Seems like your hard drive is malfunctioning, try another HD. That 80gb is already obsolete and the circuit board might have some defect.
If you could pull out the underside circuit and clean the gold contact points and try it again, if still not working...... buy a new one!
Check also the jumper and cable it must be in the "master" configuration.

Hope that helps you out!
Thanks for asking FixYa!

Try it on other Port or try plugging it on other computer.
if its corrupted there's a way of retrieving the files. using a recovery software :).
you can use Seagate File recovery software. it will work on other devices .

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
