did you run DFT
Website was down, Downloading now...
EDIT: The file isn't on the server!
Yes I noticed that too
It's still down for my side at the moment
hey try again it looks like it is up now if not I can upload it to a site and then give you the link
I have done it now, don't worry!
It took ages, so i had to quit.
But i am going to leave it on while at school, so if you could tell me if it has some finish screen that will be there still when i get back? Or will it restart without me knowing the results?
Here's that link again DFT (original link not exactly right)
Also here's the guide for that Drive Fitness Test ISO
And some important info from it:
Running the Erase Disk, Erase MBR or Sector Repair functions on non-Hitachi/IBM disk drives is not supported by DFT.
This program is only designed to work with HGST hard drives
For that reason, here are some more Drive Diagnostic test disks: http://www.techspot.com/vb/topic7602.html
dont worry about that I use it on any hdd it is my #1 tool for HDD Diagnostic. Yes it will have a finish screen just post the code it give you here
It found an error:
Disposition code: 0x72
How do i fix this?
Device S.M.A.R.T. Error.
The Self-Monitoring, Analysis and Reporting Technology (S.M.A.R.T.) has detected a drive problem. The
drive may fail soon and should be replaced as soon as possible.
Can't log-on to windows without freezing! Arggh.
I'll try to buy a new one.
My parents think it is my fault! My dad has been away, and my mum is saying "Your the one who has been using it"!
I try to tell them about the bootable cd's but they won't listen...
How? Help me! Please
can you log onto safe mode with out it crashing. Or you can also get a boot cd such as UBCD4WIN
I think he might have a memory leak, because of the high memory usage.
In answer to your question, Yes but nothing runs.
Also, my Dad is back from work after a week and he is blaming me, and wants me to phone up this tech guy. I've tried to fix it! Why is he blaming me?
Should i ask him if i can get a hijackthis log?
I have just downloaded UBCD4 and running setup now! It has loads of tools!!!!!!
Does it run all of them at once?
no you need an xp sp2 cd so you can create a bootable cd this will only help you recover data you will not be able to fix a bad hard drive you need to buy a new one
Ok.... My dad is really angry!
all you can do is backup the documents, music, pictures and get a new hard drive
How if i can't get into the computer?
