The format is corrupted. First make sure this isn't caused by hardware defects - install and use
http://www.softpedia.com/get/System/Hard-Disk-Utils/HD-Tune.shtml
If it is then the disk is dead, replace it.

Save all your data then wipe the entire disk using
http://www.dban.org/
Then boot from a Linux Live-CD and partition and format the disk as you wish.

I had Windows 8.1 istalled in my Pc but it showed problem now i want to install windows 7. I have windows 7 bootable USB and want clean instalation. i booted from USB and opened stup and formatted my


Simply formatting the hard drive does not remove all residual traces of the previous installation. When you get to the step for formatting, go to the advanced button and delete the partition that contained windows 8. Then create a new partition in the space, format, and install windows 7.

Can i use samsung recovery solution 4 for reformating the samsung n150plus?


Yes you can and if you just want to format the hard disk the discontinue the recovery installation.
You can also use a Windows installation Cd to delete the partition on the hard drive, create a new partition and format the partition then do not continue with the Windows installation.

Can not format my samsung hard drive with DOS command and Disk Genius and lost 49 GB capacity. What can I do?


You may have the hard drive partitioned into two or more partitions.
Delete all the partitions and create a single partition and then format this single partition on the hard drive.

Problem in hard drive


The hard disk may have some bad sectors. Try zero filling the hard disk. Try to download the programs from http://www.samsung.com/global/business/hdd/support/utilities/Support_HUTIL.html You will come to know if your hard disk is the culprit.

Get the hard drive replaced. It was probably damaged during shipping.

Hard disk failure


Hi, assuming the hdd won't finish a format, it is possible that some sectors are damaged. If you still want to try and use the hdd even with these defects, you can try and partition the hdd. Guesstimate at what point the hdd stops responding and really guess where the defects end. With this info, partition the hdd into 3 with the middle containing the defective sectors. Format only the first and third partitions. For simplicity, Win98 might be easier to work with rather than XP. Hope this be of some help. Do post again and let us know how things turn up.
