Hello,

I am having a problem with my Hard Disk Drive & it seems to be very hard to be fixed as I have tried using Windows Disk Check "CHKDSK Command & "Check Now" button under "Error checking" section under "Tools" Tab, Tune Up Disk Doctor, and Total Format (Not "Quick Format").

Steps I have taken with Windows Disk Check :


Step 1 :
Right Click "Propreties" => "Tools" Tab => "Error-Checking" section => "Check Now" button.

Step 2 :
Checked both the boxes (i.e. "Automatically fix file system errors" & "Scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors")

Step 3 :
Started scan & it went on for a long while finised without giving a report.

_________________________

Steps I have taken with Tune Up Disk Doctor :

Step 1 :
Started "Tune Up Disk Doctor" => selected the drive.

Step 2 :
Selected "Thorough analysis" and started the scan.

Step 3 :
Clicked "Finish" button after it turned out to say "No Errors were found".

_________________________
Steps I have taken with Windows Format :

Step 1 :
Right clicked the volume or the partition through "My Computer" and clicked "Format".

Step 2 :
Kept the "Quick Format" check box unchecked & pressed "Start" button.
And it ended up with some error.

Run the drive manufacturer's diagnostic utility on the drive.

Nothing can repair a bad sector on a drive. But you don't say what the problem is and how you know it exists.

Hi,

Thanking you Jack & Elvandil for your help.

It is a Western Digital (WD2500B EVS) 250.0 GB.

It came with my laptop's manufacturer "Dell" (Inspiron 1525).

Here is what happened.

My laptop was working fine and one day it did not load into Windows Vista and it stayed on the following boot screen, but it showed it was loading for a long time (never ending). Normally this screen does not stay for more than 2 minutes. But this time it was never ending (tried leaving this screen for about 1 hour).



So, I used Dell utility partition from the boot menu & it gave me some error code.
So, I googled the error code and it gave me some links from Dell's web site.
And the information in that web page didn't seem to look useful.

So, I used the DVD to reinstall Windows Vista Home Premium (DVD provided by Dell).
Deleted the "OS" partition and formatted it.
Now I started the Installation.
Everything was fine until when it came to the final step "Expanding Files". "Expanding Files" gets stuck at 7% and gave me the error code 0x8007002.



I hooked this Hard Disk into my PC.
So, I want to 1st backup my data into my PC and it was done.

Now I deleted all my Partitions including (Data partition that I created to keep my data safe).

Now, I used Active @ Kill Disk, because I thought this problem might have occured because there might have been some System Files that were not deleted.

It finished 99% and stopped, after saying refreshing Hard Disk.
So, I checked the log file (1st LOG) & chose to restart my PC and started the Kill Process again.
This time I unchecked the "Ignore Errors" check box (2nd LOG) and connected my Hard Disk as external using these connectors below :






Here is the 1st Log File (i.e. when I connected internally):

And with the above LOG file I came to know that the problem is in a part of the sector of this Hard Drive (8th line in the first LOG).

Thanking you all again...

Please Note : All the pictures Above are not mine but I looked for them in Google.

Best Regards, Haneef
