ok so I get a nice little error from scandisk that says "At least one area of drive C has sustained physical damage. Although such damage might be caused by an isolated incident such as a power failure. It is often a sign of impending hardware Failure." Now scandisk will not go past 2 percent then restarts&restarts and restart until i klik cancel. But norton diskDR. says everything is Fine? Any Ideas on this? I figure i could format and has bios mark them as bad sectors or is the HDD destined for the trash heep? Any help would be great.
