Question about Samsung SpinPoint P80 SP1604N 160 GB Hard Drive
I ran pc-doctor on my compaq presario, and when I ran a diagnostic for my hard drive,(Short Test), I received the error message HD521-2W. The program directed me to contact my administrator with this error message. I have tried several things to find out what this means, with no success. Please advise.
This error is basically a fatal error. you will endd up needing to replace your hard drive soon but if you dont like doing a recovery every few days and loosing your information all the time replace the hard drive

Eventually you have to reinstall your os every time you try to start your comp. But what did help mine is dont defrag and dont update certain windows updates after you reinstall os or do destructive sys. recovery !
By the way The non destructive sys. recovery & sys. restore wont do, you have to do the destructive sys. recovery.
My product is Samsung SP1614C
my error codes: HD535-4 & HDD535-S2
