Can a hard disk of a desktop computer be repaired or replaced?

I remembered there's this tool called HDD Regenerator which is known to help with fixing these kinds of issues. But when I look at the price tag and see $89.99, I can't really imagine how that's any different than buying a new hard-drive. So once again, you're practically better off buying a new one Laugh

Many thanks to FreeVPS for VPS #13 and ZXPlay for providing such an amazing service. (Read: How to get a VPS here.)

True.  But it does look interesting for just the heck of it - thanks for the suggestion.  Smile

By the way, for the last four days  (and I've been using it fully) there's been no issues.  One would think with a failing disk that the issues would become more intermittent, but it's less intermittent. Quite weird how it works.  Maybe it can still last for a while.

If a device has hardware related problems then I'm sure that this software won't help much. And if there is no hardware problems, just wrong formatting, allocation, etc, then I think that with free tools such as with the old Hiren's Boot CD or with Linux applications almost all problems can be fixed.

Although there is a free version, so it should worth a try if free alternatives failed: http://www.dposoft.net/products/hddreg/83624092/hr.exe

Here is an explanation from my favorite Hard Disk Sentinel (every once in a while it's free in international magazine's giveaway but it's worth to buy to support the creator) : http://www.hdsentinel.com/faq_repair_har..._drive.php

I think hard disk repairing is half chance for your data recovery . replace it otherwise hard disk have more bad sectors . There are many companies out there that will offer to repair your drive for a (not so small) fee . next time use inverter or a good ups

Ok Dell normally uses Toshiba drives. Secondly if it is like a key sticking and you get aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa or something like that a bunch of times try replacing the keyboard for the love of pete. Thirdly when you boot the machine check for clicking noises or abnormal sounds from the box itself. (Note this will not work for SSDs). Grab a copy of this and check the disk out along with other things. http://downloads.tomsguide.com/Hiren-s-B...51033.html it should give you an idea of what you are working with here.
I do not know why I bother posting here, Everyone knows more then I do ........ just ask them.

It's not a key sticking .... it has the appearance of such but it's an involuntary occurrence - sometimes it is a "0" or other letters of the alphabet. Believe you me dude, if you had read through all the discussions in this thread, you'd have appreciated that a bunch of us have Googled the problem to death.  Only way that the problem will be solved is to get a new hard disk.  Best comment is by someone who has a genuine in depth experience of hard disks corrupting.

there is some good tools (Hiren's Boot CD) to test ,scan,...your HDD and other stuff
you can use it via windows but the best way is to boot from CD or USB
