Question about Toshiba MK8034GSX 80 GB SATA Hard Drive
Go to this site, and they will explain the first thing to try to fix your bad sectors (using Windows utilities):
If this doesn't solve your problem, you might try this program (I read where it really helped some):
Back up your important files before you fix your sectors, just in case there are problems. You don't want to lose your important files.
There are many third party programs out there to help with this problem, and they are reported to be better than the Windows utilities, however the Windows programs are free, and might help.
If you don't have any success with the Windows programs, Google "Fix Bad Sectors", and you will find many programs and articles that talk about this.
Good luck, thanks for using FixYa, and hope this helps.

Tips for a great answer:
click start right click on my computer you should see your drive usually C: select properties click tools check now tick both boxes automatically fix files and scan for and attempt recovery on any bad sectors
then select check now, start should schedule this task when restart
it will only schedule on restart if its the Primary hard drive with an operating system on it
do not do anything while the chkdsk utility is in progress any input may damage your computer
automatically fix files and scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors place then a tick in both boxes then select check now start
you might tick one box then return after its finished the first repair then return and tick the second box you should not do anything while the chkdsk utility is in progress any input may damage this drive
I found that you get best results by ticking one box then returning after it has finished then tick the other box
hope it helps
