I suggest puting your hdd on another computer, full format it again, and scan it for bad sectors.Also, searching for a program that repairs bad HDD sectors, the windows default erros scan could not be very helpful if there are many bad sectors.

How can i remove bad sectors from my hard disk?????


You can not remove bad sectors from hard drives. Bad sectors are parts of the disk that become unreadable / unwriteable. Hard drives made in recent years simply stop using that part of the drive.

Seagate sata hdd error


Quick format removes files from the partition, but does not scan the disk for bad sectors, while a normal format does that. That's why the formatting takes so much longer.
You should definitely check your drive for bad sectors by issuing "chkdsk /r" in the command line, which scans for and attempts the recovery of bad sectors.

If there is a bad sector somewhere, your system might crash at any time and it might be at a very inconvenient moment.
If you find bad sectors, you should consider replacing the drive

Problem related Seagate Hard Disk


i also encountered that problem about using seagate. first make sure that theres no loose connection between the MotherB and HardDisk. Or maybe it has a virus or a bad sector.,Try this, if you have another hard disk, try to make the 80gb a slave drive. then format it using windows base process (Right click the drive then FORMAT). or try DEFRAGMENTATION and scandisk for that drive.

the first boot sector of the hard drive is corrupt so fdisk wont work
please use software to repair the boot sectors zero and 63.
usually the softwares are superfdisk which is free on net.

also if you fail use seagate disk manager bootable version. it will be very quick and handy in long term too to format seagate hard drives
