Question about Computers & Internet
I have a Sony Vaio as described above, the computer is roughly 6 months old and according to CHKDSK the harddrive is ok, however the sony diagnostics are detecting damage on the harddrive. I have a 2 year extended warrenty as well as the sony warrenty, what will the warrenty from best buy do regarding this issue? I am nearly certain the harddisk is somehow damaged in a way CHKDSK is not looking for, being that it is a toshiba I cannot get any software from the manufactuer of that specific piece of hardware to inspect the drive prior to conceeding defeat and handing the problem to someone else to deal with. Right now I am working with a barely restored, partially functional computer that needs to be fixed.
If you are pretty sure the hard drive is faulty I would use the warranties and have it replaced.
Did you try running chkdsk with the /r switch?
Go to Start, Run, type cmd and hit OK. When the dos screen opens type chkdsk /r (note the space between the k and the /). It will probably say it cannot do it until the next boot. Enter y for yes. When your PC restarts chkdsk should go through 5 stages and display a summary of what was found and what it did when it finishes.
