|I built my computer just a little over 6 months ago but I am using the same hard drive for the last 5 years. |
I just want to make sure its the hard drive and nothing else.
I continue to have disk read error occurred whenever i try booting my computer up.
Now, I can install windows xp, format it, install it and quickly press any key to continue. but If i wait any longer, disk read occured will pop up.
Now, i can, once i install windows up, I can use the computer except I cannot turn it off. once I turn it off and try to turn it on, disk read error will pop up and ill have to install windows once more because, it will tell me i ahve to reformat it.
is this the hard drive or could it be something else?
Now i did, chkdsk /r, a few times and the last time, it stayed at 25% and said one or more unrepairable sectors.
