Bad sectors on the HARD disk in cell A10 satellite

Hi all... I use Win XP on an A10 Satellite with 512 MB of Ram.
The problem is that my pc is too slow after a format I did yesterday.

After checking the hard drive found some bad sectors... do I have to replace the drive hard and how can I do?
Do you know how much GB disk can use? Are there restrictions? Thank you!


If your HARD drive is not dead then you need not to replace the HARD drive.
Bad sectors can be repaired easily.

I would recommend doing this;
Start the console with the command: CMD
You can then use the command chkdsk/p/r

This should help.
There are a lot of programs that could help to repair the HARD drive.
Google for "HARD drive repair", "HDDBadSectorRepair. The two applications are useful.

    Thank you for posting a copy of a report of chkdsk on your C partition select Start, run, type "cmd" without the quotes in the box and press ENTER. Type chkdsk, and then press the ENTER key and a report, stating, among other things, a summary of how disk space is used, is provided. If you want a report on a partition or one drive other than C, you need to go to this partition. To access F, where F is the required partition you type F: and press the ENTER key.

    Copies of the reports from a command prompt can be tricky. Right click and select mark. This allows to highlight the selected text, and then click on copy. You will then open Word, Notepad or similar file, right click and paste. The selected text transfers your Clipboard to open the file.

  • Replacing the HARD drive in cell A10 satellite

    My hard drive in my Satellite Pro A10 is dead, but I can't buy a new one, it seems, anywhere, even not the toshiba site. Where can I buy one, or what another hard drive can it be replaced by?

    Model number: MK-3021GAS, HDD2181, B, ZE01 T


    I understand that you need a HARD disk with adapter Slim SelectBay.

    But I think that the best solution would be to buy a Toshiba service partner. There, you can be sure to get the right one.

    Good bye

  • Bad sectors on the hard drive; help to isolate or repair

    Hello, recently I discovered that my windows get to slump that closely mimics a gel at a random time. After a lot of research on this topic, I did several diagnostic tests on my laptop and finally reduced to my hard drive.
    The problem is evident for the following reasons:
    • When I tried to run chkdsk/r/f, which is always translated by he stuck to "step 4: check the data in the file" around 70%.
    • When the slowdown occurs, the resource monitor from Task Manager for the disk activity showed 1 KB/s (not sure if this is suspicious)
    • Tried various hard drive diagnostic tools. WinDLG gets blocked for a certain sector, but has never even if I waited for 6 h +. SeaTools for DOS has reported that the hard drive failed the tests. Dell diagnostic tool also pointed out the hard drive, is not the test of confidence in some sectors. Toshiba Diagnostics tool did not work as I could not highlight the readers so he could test.
    Formally, this means that I have bad sectors on the hard drive and I want to know if there are solutions to 'fix' or isolate him rather than replace the hard drive. The hard drive is only a year old and I would like to get as much time as I can with the drive without having to spend on a new.
    In addition, I also came to this post here which seems to reflect the same situation:
    However, there are a few parts where I am confused and does not really apply to my situation (for example, meanwhile his stage 5, for me its stage 4). Thanks in advance for any help.

    CHKDSK does not indicate a failing hard drive, it indicates problems with the filesystem (NTFS.sys) hard disk.  I like to repeat because that may indicate more out of trouble (if you get several times CHKDSK repair things, then something else is the cause).

    That's what I'm looking for:
    "Windows has made corrections to the file system."
    Know me mistakes.

    DO NOT use the drivers from the resource CD.  They are overwhelmed when you get them.  Go to the Dell support site and download the latest versions here.

    Unfortunately, unless your highly qualified with a soldering iron on small electric parts, then there is no replacement of the part.  Also unfortunately, there is no test for a motherboard problem, so we have to everything else on the rule.

    If it passes all the tests, it indicates that it passed all tests.  All these tests are software - they can not physically 'see' a hardware problem, but can deduct that it based on the results of the tests.

    I suggest you a few additional tests before start thinking that it's the mobo.  They are Prime95 test and tests stress CPU at this link:

    I also suggest another facility 'clean' - just to be sure.  Here's what I propose for a clean install:
    For testing purposes, it is best to install Windows "clean".
    It is, basically, install the way that Microsoft intended (with the drivers from Windows Update).
    This procedure is for Windows 7, Vista is similar (but has 2 service packs)

    You will need your installation/recovery DVD (s) before you start.  Once you wipe the hard drive, there is no going back!

    1 back up all your data.
    It will wipe everything off of your hard drive, so what you want to keep should be backed up elsewhere.

    [b] [u] NOTES: [/ b] [/ u] If this is due to an infection, remember to analyze the data with current antivirus to another system to locate and remove malware.

    2. connect the system to the internet (if the system shows then disconnect from the Internet, do).

    3. use one of these free utilities to wipe the hard drive:
    DBAN (
    KillDisk (
    This will remove also any partition system - then the intallation/recovery recovery DVD are essential!

    4. install Windows by booting from the installation/recovery DVD - [b] [u] DO NOT change any settings! [/ u] [/ b]

    5 visit Windows Update and get all updates

    6 visit Windows Update and download the Service Pack 1 (normally under important updates).  Read these notes for installing SP1:

    7 visit Windows Update and get any other available updates

    8. check device for all unknown/disabled devices Manager - if there are unknown disabled devices, secure them with the latest drivers from the website of the manufacturer of the device (not the PC manufacturer)

    9 download, install and update a free antivirus, so it does not get infected during the test (

  • Bad sectors on the hard drive

    My neighbor's daughter brought me his cell phone more, g6-1d20ca model. It does not start. There is a loop on the text of recovery. I ran my "CD Boot" (Hiren s) on this topic and saw that the hard drive was littered with bad sectors. The HD is obviously toast. My Question: Is - this acceptable once I replaced the HD to load my version of Win 7 64 bit on his cell phone, but the use of its Windows product key? The part of the recovery of the HD is inaccessible. It's never the disks when she bought the laptop. I then download the drivers and others on the HP website. Is this legally possible?

    Forward to your response.

    Yes, as long as your version corresponds to its key. Like Home Premium.

    You can order a recovery media for about $17 (I ordered last time) of his models support page:

  • Satellite L20-214 - isolate bad sectors on the HARD drive?

    Dear Sir

    My laptop fell off my table leading to serious hard drive problems. The hard drive now has some bad sectors that can be repaired with the chkdsk command. I managed to get my data on an external hard drive. Despite the bad sectors, I can reinstall it however from the recovery cd. Starting after that time consuming (1.5 hours) and after starting Windows I get the error messages from programs that cannot be started. It's the same thing after each reinstall. My guess is that the recovery disk writes data on the same spot every time both on bad sectors.

    I was wondering if theres a way to fix or even isolate bad sectors on the disk, so I can continue to use my laptop.

    Your help is very appreciated.


    You can try HDD Regenerator 1.61 (HDD Regenerator is a unique program for regeneration of physically damaged hard disk drives. It does not hide bad sectors, it really restores them).
    However, the best way is to buy a new hard drive :)

  • Boots only to the Startup Repair. Hardware diagnostics found bad blocks on the hard disk. is it possible to move data outside of Windows?

    Original title: Hi, I have a Dell Inspiron 1545 laptop.  Recently, he stopped working and would go only to the screen that asks if you want to run the Startup Repair tool.

    Of course whenever I launch it, it goes back to this screen.  Check the diagnostics through the F12 boot, I had three error codes: 0F00:1344, 0244 and 1 A 44.  These were all on the same three blocks.  The message was impossible to read, replace the drive.  I'm really the most responsible for recover my photos, documents, etc. and have an external hard drive.  Is it possible to do so, even if Windows (Vista in this case) will not start?


    You can try these methods

    Data recovery

    1. remove the hard drive and it slave in another computer

    2 buy or borrow a USB disk drive hard put in yout case then plug it into another computer and read the hard drive like this

    3. try Knoppix


    BUT this method depends on your hardware in the computer that failed

    If this does not work, you may need to contact the data recovery specialists

    It seems you are running a software fake Antivirus or fake-SystemRestoration. They pay for nothing, and often their so-called problems reported are false also.
    You should get a decent Antivirus software and check your computer against viruses and malware.

    I found these tips how to disable the Norto Go Back tool.
    You can uninstall it from your computer, disable GoBack to your laptop press 'space' GoBack screen button and select the option "disable" GoBack.

    Follow these steps:
    1. reboot your computer.
    2. when the Norton GoBack splash screen appears, press the SPACEBAR.
    3. in the Norton GoBack boot menu, click on disable.
    A message informs you that disable Norton GoBack erases history and you will not be able to run the hard drive or hard disk restore advanced restore until Norton GoBack is turned back on.
    4. click on Yes.
    5. click on continue.
    Your computer restarts automatically, and Norton GoBack is off
    After restarting the laptop, I recommend once again using the following key: CTRL + ALT + G.
    Immediately press on and hold the keys Ctrl + Alt + G after restarting the laptop you. A message you giving the possibility to force the removal of GoBack master boot record. Press F to force the removal of GoBack master boot record.

    If failure of keys Ctrl + Alt + G in the first time then try this again for three or four times until you get the prompt to remove the master boot record of GoBack.
    Finally, restart the computer.

    To fix bad sectors on the HARD drive, you could boot from the XP CD to use the console of "repair".
    And then use the CHKDSK /p command to repair the bad sectors.

    Good luck
