If the Chkdsk/f doesn't do anything for you then it is possible that you will need to look at getting a new HDD. If it is damaged it is unlikely you will be able to repair it.

I am unable to format my 40 GB Hard Disk (samsung) with WinXP Installation CD. After Doing Patition and format it comes unable to format


you have to format your hard drive using a third party disc to erase everything on your hard drive

During the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key to enter setup

Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS the scroll down to advanced bios features press enter change your first boot device to cd,press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart

note this will erase you operating system you will have to have an operating system disk to load it onto you hard drive or create a partition to load another operating system

(note after you have loaded the operating system you should go back and change the first boot device to your hard drive)

hope this helps

I cant access my external hard drive


Either the hard disk has become corrupt or the OS that was installed is not being recognised now. Try making it slave or secondary and see if the pc is able to detect it then recover the data that you want to save else format it.
