I had 40Gb Western Digital harddisk that worked perfect untill few week ago, the bad sectors appeared with sound some kinda of sound that is comming out of the harddisk. So i bought another one 80Gb Seagate, i installed WinXP, it was working nicely and Now it got BAD sectors??? i checked with Norton Utilities and the bad sectors are just at the begining of my first partition (i.e. C: ) Now what should i do?? Is it because of my Motherboard (i.e. Intel D845 GEBV2) which i bought 5 months ago or some other problem?? Is it possible to leave the Bad Sectors Area of H/Disk unallocated ?? If Yes, then how to find the location of Bad Sectors?? Should i sell this M/Board with Processor and get another one or continue with M/Board and get a new H/Disk??
