Recently my pc was nagging me with a window telling me to backup file because my harddisk might fail any time. I ticked the never show me checkbox. After a month and half now my pc restarting more frequently.

Found this in event log, first event 52 occurs in 30 oct and last one was today, past 3 days occured 5-6 times a day.

Event 52, Disk
"The driver has detected that device \Device\Harddisk0\DR0 has predicted that it will fail. Immediately back up your data and replace your hard disk drive. A failure may be imminent."

Any Solution? like chkdsk or some hdd powertools? or atleast prevent pc restart until it dies completely

So there is no way to prevent the restarts, replace the drive ASAP. I think it will solve the problem. Good luck.

A mechanically bad drive started the problem. So there is no way to stop that unless you replace. The software determined that not me.

I guess unchecking the Automatic Restart on System Failure doesn't do it for me while i leave pc unattended and want to keep pc running that way. I was hoping if there's a solution like format or do something to that drive so it will never seek in the bad sector and will keep running. more like putting a warning pole in manhole during flood, so people won't fall in the hole.

Well i read the my hdd review somewhere that everyone says it's always failing for them around age 2-3 years. By crystaldiskinfo my power count 3276 and power hours 32793. which is almost 4years. i guess i squeezed every bit of performance from that drive :')

Thanks lonewolf7 for help,

# btw i am still wondering what this means " Red Dot, id 5, Reallocated Sectors Count, current 2, worst 2, threshold 36, ..... " in computer language :)

Ok, give it a another try by using drive's manufacturers diagnostics tool.

In short, you should worry if reallocated sectors is increasing consistently. If the number is constant after several boots, then it isn't a problem. If it increases consistently then you should be worried.

But what I think also that there is some mechanical errors involved thus giving you trouble. And you are welcome.
