When a hard disk has bad sectors, these sectors can be fixed by running check disk. This is a temporary fix as the hard disk is nearly worn out and it will get more bad sectors and evenually the hard disk will fail completely.
Bad sectors occur when the magnetic oxide on the disk platters is worn out and data cannot be written or read from these sectors.
To run check disk click Start - My Computer - right click on C Drive and click on Properties - click on Tools tab - then Check Now in Error Checking
I suggest once this has been done, you back up your data and purchase a new hard disk ready to install Windows etc. when the hard disk fails completely. You may want to install a new hard drive before the old hard drive fails completely.

My hp desktop says internal hard disk not found how do i reset my drive


First reset the CMOS. Check your motherboard specs for how to do this or remove the small round silver battery from the motherboard; wait 30 seconds and reinstall it. (It is a good idea to replace with a new battery.) This will reset the CMOS. Then reboot to see if HDD is detected. If not, go into the BIOS setup (repeatedly hit F10 at HP logo screen) and check to see if your hard drive is listed. You may have to set it to "on". If it is listed in BIOS, but not detected another drive (a bad one) could prevent it from being detected. If you have any removable or external drives attached to your computer, disconnect them. Reboot your computer to see if your HDD is detected. If not, open your case and disconnect the data cable from all drives except your primary hard drive. This includes the floppy, optical, zip, backup, or secondary hard drive(s). If your HDD is detected, reconnect each drives data cable one at a time rebooting between each. If after reconnecting a drive and rebooting, your HDD is not detected the last drive is a bad drive and preventing your HDD detection. I have found that sometimes a bad drive that is connected will let the HDD be detected then on later boots the HDD will not be detected. Also it is possible that your BIOS is corrupted. Let's hope not. Another possibility is a bad motherboard. I hope this helps you.

It has an error e 74


E74 means a hardware malfunction, might be due to a bad memory storage deive attached to the Xbox 360 which is the hard drive (HDD). Steps to do:

• turn of the console and remove the HDD
• restart the console without HDD
• if it works without the E74 error, the HDD is bad and needs replacement
• if still having the same error even without the HDD, it's is an internal hardware failure inside the sytem already

If all else fails, please contact Microsoft Xbox Support for it ti be repaired. Hope this helps.. Cheers!

Unable to boot system and repair feature will not run. Also, there are no restore points (files). However I can get into the cmd prompt mode. Safe mode does not work. System is a Toshiba Satellite...


Hi there!
Well it seems that you are in a bad situation my friend. So let me help you out.
It seems that your system files are corrupt & preventing it to go to windows (may be due to improper shut-down).

What to do?
Please remove the hard disk from your laptop, put it in an external 2.5" casing. Then plug it to another laptop or pc having a good anti-virus. Now switch on the other computer. The system will correct the files on boot. If this doesn't happen, go to my computer after boot. Locate the HDD in my computer \ your HDD \ properties \ tools \
Here you'll run chkdisk & scan for errors, bad sectors etc. After that scan for any virus in that HDD. Now back up your important stuffs & send it to your DATA partition.
Now shutdown laptop & remove the HDD from the casing, then put it back in your laptop. Now boot & see your problems solved.
Please send us your feedback & vote to motivate us.Thanks.

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.
