Hello hubert lee,

Generally there is only one of two ways to resolve this. Depending on the severity of the corruption.

1) If the hard drive can not be repairable - purchase another hard drive and if possible install the operating system and re-install all the software programs onto your new hard drive. The corrupted hard drive, depending if you have important data to recover, you may want to take it to a local pc repair shop and see if they can recover your data.

2) See if the hard drive is repairable - you can download a gateway scan (GWScan5.12) from theere website and follow the simple instructions to copy the file onto a floppy diskette (will need to do this on another pc). Then run the GWScan, go thru an extensive hard drive test and wait for a result. At some cases, it may be able to repair your hard drive (again, depending on the severity of corruption). The following is the link to download the GWScan5.12 http://support.gateway.com/support/drivers/getFile.asp?id=21280&dscr=GWSCAN%205.12&uid=20276003

Good luck and thank you

Hi There, when you formatted the hard drive, did you remember to partition the space correctly? If not, run through the process again, and remember to partition it again. If it is saying a corrupt hard drive, it means that the hard drive can't be read. Like trying to read a paper that has been burned in a fire. If the hard drive is corrupt after format, you need to buy a new hard disk, and remember to make sure it is the same kind as the old one.
