Question about Hard Drives
Bad sectors mean OMG time to chunk that hard drive.
if an Fdisk and a Format and a Scandisk doesn't solve the problem it's time to say goodby to it.
last resort move it to another machine , and try recovery , do not load and activate windows afterwards because microsoft will send hitmen to your house to kill you lol

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect your hard drive boot up
Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA
the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them there probably old and faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty or just replace them they are probably old and faulty ?
one bad lead will end with a computer error also run the chkdsk utility
