I have a very old laptop (HP Omni Book 4150) and it has no Floppy, No CD-Drive, No LAN port, nothing at all. It's PII with 64MB RAM and 4.5GB HDD.
I'm connecting the HDD to my PC using a mobile HD enclosure with USB connection.
The HDD has bad sector. I failed to install anything you could ever imagine. I tried every possible OS that could come to your mind, and I mean anything and everything but I failed. First, I didn't know it has bad sectors then with some commands and tests, I found out it stops working or responding when the scan reaches certain sector.
Anyway, that's just an introduction.
I was wondering if there's any software/tool to FIX and REPAIR Bad Sectors?
I'm sure there are some but I couldn't find any or let's say I'm not sure what's the right tool that I could use?
That HDD is empty and has nothing. I can't even install DOS so I connected my Internal HDD which has Windows XP. I guess my job will be much easier when I'm dealing with that HDD from Windows rather than trying to fix it while there's no OS installed on it anyway.
Please, don't tell me forget it or throw it away. I don't throw stuff that could be repaired.
Thank you :)
