  1. find out what hard drive you have go to that manufacturers site and DL there diagnostic software. run it and hopefully repair any bad sectors it finds.
    also get any info you can off of that disk now.
    also if you have another computer you can take the hard drive out of your laptop and test it on another machine.

    if you have a different manufacturer then they usually have their own software
  4. usually a quick search for manufacturer and then download will show you what you are looking for
    example: western digital download or hitachi download or seagate download
    seagate uses seatools i beleive
  5. If your Laptop can run Windows try Seatools for Windows

    If you can't run Windows and have access to another PC where you can burn a disk, Seatools for DOS

  6. Go to computer>right-click your hard drive and go to properties, under properties go to tools>error checking... you should have to restart your computer for this to work. Your computer will check to make sure your HDD is not corrupted or having bad sectors. If worst comes to worst it might be because your drive is failing and you will need to back up your data to another storage device. If you don't have another OS you can use, it might be a good idea to just clone your whole hard drive into another hard drive. The acronis cloning software runs for $19.99 on Amazon and works well.
