There is no way to fix a bad sector. A bad sector is like a scratch on a cd that can't be fixed. You should run a program like "HD Tune", when you use a program what it does is it will read the disk and when it can't read a certain spot it marks it as a bad sector. After that the hard drive will move the data from the bad sector to a spare area of the hard drive. The spare area will store the data from a bad sector and will be usable like the old one. However if you get too many bad sectors you will run out of spares. When that happens your drive will crash.

You Can Try These Steps: Windows comes with a built-in hard disk utility software that scans your hard disk for errors and attempts to fix them.
  1. On My Computer, select the disk drive that you want to diagnose and repair.
  2. Right click on it and select Properties
  3. Go to Tools tab.
  4. Click on the "Check Now" button under "Error Checking Status".
  5. Depending up on your choice, choose either "Automatically fix file system errors" or "Scan for and Attempt Recovery of Bad Sectors."
  6. Then click on Start.

During a hard disk test, it stopped and said to replace hard disk 1


Which tools are you using? Does it give any other information such as bad sector on hard disk? You can also check the log to see whether some details are there. If bad sector, you may need to replace the disk or fix the sector by flagging it. But it is safer to replace it because it might be the reader so it will keep breaking the surface of the hard disk.

My computer HDD have bad sactors please help to remove this on


When a hard disk has bad sectors, these sectors can be fixed by running check disk. This is a temporary fix as the hard disk is nearly worn out and it will get more bad sectors and evenually the hard disk will fail completely.
Bad sectors occur when the magnetic oxide on the disk platters is worn out and data cannot be written or read from these sectors.
To run check disk click Start - My Computer - right click on C Drive and click on Properties - click on Tools tab - then Check Now in Error Checking
I suggest once this has been done, you back up your data and purchase a new hard disk ready to install Windows etc. when the hard disk fails completely. You may want to install a new hard drive before the old hard drive fails completely.

How can I fix bad sectors in my hard drive


You cannot. The disk-drive has some "spare" sectors, and it should automatically reassign them, i.e., like using a spare tire on your car when one of the 4 tires goes flat, you just "swap-in" the "spare".

Unfortunately, unlike fixing a flat tire, there is no way to "repair" a bad sector on a disk.

Having "bad" sectors is a sign that your disk-drive is _SOON_ to _COMPLETELY_ fail. So, it's time for you to buy a new disk-drive, and copy all your files from your "old" disk to your "new" disk. Compare it to buying insurance for your automobile, in case of a "crash" while using your automobile (or your computer).

I have bad sectors in my hard disk what should can i do?


There is nothing you can do about bad sectors. The Hard Drive itself, with its associated electronics, automatically maps these bad sectors and doesn't use them any more. So, the answer to your question is "NOTHING". Bad sectors may eventually make your Hard Drive unusable, and if your bad sector count is growing quickly it's time to do a complete backup and replace the drive.
