Slow Harddisk Read/Write

Recommended Posts

Hello

Guys.Girls,Aliens, and reptiles and anyone else that the afore mentioned missed

I have a laptop ( medion md6032 )

I was a good piece of kit when all worked well

Of late the HDD is performing very badly

3 MB's read 1MB's write (according to (speedupmypc.exe)

and (Dr Hardware 2005)

 

I have installed the latest drivers from SIS ( SIS is the System board, motherboard, mainboard, planerboard ,call it what you like for the laptop ) for everyrging ( PCI, USB, AGP Soundcard )

but no luck

 

I tried Hitache ( HDD ) manufacturer to get a solution

They have some drive diagnostic software that can fix or test your drive

I tried this ( test only as fix will destroy data ) but the test does not return a vailid reslult the software starts then drops to a dos cmd prompt

showing

Unhandled Execption 000d at 00B7 224E ErrCode 7520

 

 

Any help would be appriciated

especialy other drive diagnostic software that has an ISO to copy to CD

as my laptop has no FDD

 

Cheers

The best, nondestructive repair program in the universe is Spinrite, but it isn't free (but for what it does, the price sure is attractive, $89)

^^^ Read everything from this site that you can get your hands on. ^^^

 

They will give you insight on why and how it works. It will keep drives from dying. It can help recover data, by moving it to safe sectors... and more...

 

I highly suggest watching both movies: http://www.grc.com/sr/themovie.htm

Steve Gibson is an engineering genius who helped pioneer the technology that powers hard drives today. Spinrite has been around for 16 years, and I swear by it constantly. I use it at least once a week at my shop (and refer my other techs to it often).

 

There's a 30-day satisfaction guarantee. I also personally guarantee that the program is worth $89. Whether it can help you fix your drive or not is a different story (obviously it depends on the integrity of your drive). But Spinrite is highly recommend it. I run it on brand new drives to ensure that no sectors are weak by default, and I run it every 6 months to keep my drive in shape (since it rewrites every sector, it prevents weak sectors from appearing).
