My laptop is Hp. my hard disk has some bad sectors and this is making my operaating system to boot and work very slowly. I use both Linux and windows how do I repair the hard disk and remmove th bad...


bad sectors depending on what has caused it can be increadibly hard if not impossible to rid yourself of them. try opening start and searching for disk defrag. set it for as deep a scan as you can. if you can get it to do it before you boot into windows to allow it to shift and sort booting data and un accessible data in windows. before you let it go also click on learn more about disk defrag and click on the bottom link in the help manual which shows you how to make sure the scanner will find and fix bad sectors . second would be to rid yourself of any and all unwanted files with disk cleanup and manually finding and eliminating programs you dont use especially the HP standard stuff they so dearly love to burden your system up with. thirdly would be finding a good optimisation program. i use TuneUp utilities which to me seems to make it run better. 4th would be replace your hard drive with a solid state hard drive and start clean again with fresh installations. use an external drive mounter to transfer all files you require and shove the old drive in the back of a filing case as a backup. if you use option 4 if you have a secondary hard drive swap page filing to that one to reduce wear. after option 4 if it is still slow you are likely looking at RAM or a faster laptop altogether because one solid state drive will give it a kick up the back end so much you will believe its a whole new beast. and i have 2.

for your linux side... i doubt you can do a lot to improve on it as it already is at its bare bones performance peak except for increasing its drive size.

No boot sector on internal hard drive. No bootable


Hi there,

A boot sector is a sector of a hard disk that contains booting programs stored in the other part of the hard disk. You boot sector might have been deleted or corrupted and you can't logon until you repair or recover the boot sector. To do this you must have your OS cd. Boot from OS cd the follow below steps...

Windows Vista
1. Insert the installation disc.
2. Restart your computer
3. If prompted, press any key to start Windows from the installation disc.
4. Choose your language settings, and then click Next.
5. Click Repair your computer.
6. Select the operating system you want to repair, and then click Next.

7.

On the System Recovery Options menu, click Startup Repair. Startup Repair might prompt you to make choices as it tries to fix the problem, and if necessary, it might restart your computer as it makes repairs.


Boot from you hard disk then you're done!

How to speed up your computer's performance?


<p><b>Information:</b><br /> <p>There are some few guidelines that you can follow to maintain your computer and keep it running smoothly. <br /> <p><b>Free Up Disk Space</b><br /> <p>By freeing disk space, you can improve the performance of your computer. The Disk Cleanup tool helps you free up space on your hard disk. The utility identifies files that you can safely delete, and then enables you to choose whether you want to delete some or all of the identified files.<br /> <p><b>Use Disk Cleanup to:</b><br /> <p>&bull; Remove temporary Internet files.<br />&bull; Remove downloaded program files (such as Microsoft ActiveX controls and Java applets).<br />&bull; Empty the Recycle Bin.<br />&bull; Remove Windows temporary files.<br />&bull; Remove optional Windows components that you don't use.<br />&bull; Remove installed programs that you no longer use.<br /> <p> <br /> <p> <br /> <p><b>Tip:</b> Typically, temporary Internet files take the most amount of space because the browser caches each page you visit for faster access later.<br /> <p> <br /> <p><b>To use Disk Cleanup</b><br /> <p>1. Click Start, point to All Programs, point to Accessories, point to System Tools, and then click Disk Cleanup. If several drives are available, you might be prompted to specify which drive you want to clean.<br /> <p> <br /> <p> <br /> <p>Disk Cleanup calculates the amount of space you will be able to free.<br /> <p>2. In the Disk Cleanup for dialog box, scroll through the content of the Files to delete list.<br /> <p> <br /> <p> <br /> <p>Choose the files that you want to delete.<br /> <p>3. Clear the check boxes for files that you don't want to delete, and then click OK.<br /> <p>4. When prompted to confirm that you want to delete the specified files, click Yes. <br /> <p>After a few minutes, the process completes and the Disk Cleanup dialog box closes, leaving your computer cleaner and performing better.<br /> <p> <br /> <p> <br /> <p><b>Speed Up Access to Data</b><br /> <p>Disk fragmentation slows the overall performance of your system. When files are fragmented, the computer must search the hard disk when the file is opened to piece it back together. The response time can be significantly longer.<br /> <p>Disk Defragmenter is a Windows utility that consolidates fragmented files and folders on your computer's hard disk so that each occupies a single space on the disk. With your files stored neatly end-to-end, without fragmentation, reading and writing to the disk speeds up.<br /> <p><b>Run Disk Defragmenter</b><br /> <p>In addition to running Disk Defragmenter at regular intervals, optimally monthly, certain events warrant running the utility outside of the monthly rule of thumb.<br /> <p>You should run Disk Defragmenter under the following circumstances:<br /> <p>&bull; You add a large number of files. <br />&bull; Your free disk space nears 15 percent. <br />&bull; You install new programs or a new version of Windows.<br /><br /> <p> <br /> <p><b>To use Disk Defragmenter:</b><br /> <p>1. Click Start, point to All Programs, point to Accessories, point to System Tools, and then click Disk Defragmenter.<br /> <p> <br /> <p>Click Analyze to start the Disk Defragmenter.<br /> <p>2. In the Disk Defragmenter dialog box, click the drives that you want to defragment, and then click the Analyze button.<br /> <p>After the disk is analyzed, a dialog box appears, letting you know whether you should defragment the analyzed drives.<br /> <p><b>Tip:</b> You should analyze a volume before defragmenting it to get an estimate of how long the defragmentation process will take.<br /> <p>3. To defragment the selected drive or drives, click the Defragment button.<br /> <p>After the defragmentation is complete, Disk Defragmenter displays the results.<br /> <p>4. To display detailed information about the defragmented disk or partition, click View Report.<br /> <p>5. To close the View Report dialog box, click Close.<br /> <p>6. To close the Disk Defragmenter utility, click the Close button on the title bar of the window.<br /> <p><b>Detect and Repair Disk Errors</b><br /> <p>In addition to running Disk Cleanup and Disk Defragmenter to optimize the performance of your computer, you can check the integrity of the files stored on your hard disk by running the Error Checking utility.<br /> <p>As you use your hard drive, it can develop bad sectors. Bad sectors slow down hard disk performance and sometimes make data writing (such as file saving) difficult, or even impossible. The Error Checking utility scans the hard drive for bad sectors, and scans for file system errors to see whether certain files or folders are misplaced.<br /> <p>If you use your computer daily, you should try to run this utility weekly to help prevent data loss.<br /> <p><b>To run the Error Checking utility:</b><br /> <p><b>Important:</b> Be sure to close all files before running the Error-Checking utility.<br /> <p>1. Click Start, and then click My Computer.<br />2. In the My Computer window, right-click the hard disk you want to search for bad sectors, and then click Properties.<br />3. In the Properties dialog box, click the Tools tab.<br />4. Click the Check Now button.<br />5. In the Check Disk dialog box, select the Scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors check box, and then click Start.<br /> <p> <br /> <p>In most circumstances, select Scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors.<br /> <p>6. If bad sectors are found, choose to fix them.<br /> <p><b>Tip:</b> Only select the Automatically fix file system errors check box if you think that your disk contains bad sectors.<br /> <p> <br /> <p>Hope this will help...<br />

How do I know that my hard disk has bad sectors?


you can download ubcd, or minipe, and burn them to a cd, if you have another computer, then insert the cd of your choice (minipe is a bit easier), minipe has a start menu similar to the normal windows start menu, somewhere in that menu, there should be a chkdsk, or check disk utility, you would want to run that, and choose yes when it asks if you want to check for bad sectors

Failure is imminent


Bad sectors on a hard disk is an every day thing, the hard drive keeps a bunch of spare sectors and a table to reroute bad sectors to the backups. This warning basically means that you are out of backups, and now you may start losing real data if you do not change the hard disk.
