Corrupted/ Unreadable C-Drive
So first of all hi, I have a dell inspiron N4010. My c-drive is corrupted everytime i restart my laptop it gives me the black screen to checkdisk when it checks it says segment ####unreadable. So now when i checkdisk i just cancel it. i also did checkdisk with cmd and appears my c-drive is corrupted. I want to change my harddisk, is it a good idea to do so? or do i just reinstall w7? Will i lose all my drivers i i reinstall W7? Or upgrade to W8.1? Does anybody have an idea?
Yes, yes, yes and yes? If you need data on that drive, you could recover it by creating a bootable Linux CD or USB drive, then grabbing all the files within Ubuntu or whatever - that's what I had to do when my copy of Windows was corrupted. New hard drive is encouraged - an SSD would be best for a laptop. You can reinstall W7 - or install 8.1 if you want, and you'll have to go find all your drivers from the manufacturer's website.
bgunner said:before any drastic measures are taken open command prompt and run these 2 commands.
the first will repair the windows file that are corrupt and the second will scan the disk and fix the errors it finds. that is what the /f means.
Thsfc/scannow didnt work. It says: Windows Resource Protection found corrupt diles but was unable to fix some of them. Details are included in the CBS.Log windir\Logs\CBS\CBS.log. For Example C:\Windows\Logs\CBS\CBS.Log
