Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I'm running spinrite level 4 on a Maxtor 10GB hard drive and I am getting these results under S.M.A.R.T monitoring, and its increasing as it's scanning. ecc corrected 574,262 error rate 476,306 seek errors 60,459 write errors 719,713 Does this mean it's an issue with the hard drive? When I selected the drive to scan, it gave me a message that the partition size exceeds the size in the bios. It may cause trouble with spinrite. The system runs very slow while using the internet, etc

It sounds like an issue with the hard drive. If it's only a 10gb hard drive i recommend replacing it as a new replacement is very inexpensive.
Thank you,

ChMy maxtor hard drive is making beeping noises when connected to my computer. It does not come up at all, it does beeps and stays beeping. Any suggestions?

step 1
Check the power to the hard drive also check all the connections on the hard drive .

Step 2
you need to get Spinrite HARD DRIVE DIAGNOSTICS and burn it to a CD and boot into BOS to run the CD and check the hard drive for errors, The beeps mean that the hard drive has a big problem.

if the problem is still there let me know.

I cant open my external hard drive

The Seagate website should have the installer available for download under their support link. You will have to look up your exact model # and download the package for the operating system you are running. Hope this helps.

Hdd c: problem

Quick format only marks the disc as empty.
Try performing a CHKDSK /F /X /R C:
also do a full format next time, you may want to replace the hard drive, or you could try a program like HDD REGENERATOR or SPINRITE to fix it. These programs may not fix the hard drive as if it is too damaged but they may help in some problems.
