Hi all,

I really need help! My laptop has been displaying a message "Windows detected a hard disk problem" since yesterday. Additionally I've got message about wrong running battery to change. Can I repair a hard disk somehow or I need to buy a new one?

My laptop is running very slow, sometimes frozes (mainly the browser) and starting the computer is very slow as well. 

Best regards

Backup your files to another storage device as this hard drive failing.


To make sure hard disk drive failing, please download and run SeaTools for Windows.


Before the installation begins you will be prompted to either Decline or Accept the terms of the installation, click on I Accept.

1.  Once the installation begins SeaTools for Windows will search for HDDs and SSDs on your computer. 

2.  Detected Drives will list the HDDs and SSDs found.  Place a check mark in the drive box you want to run the scan on.  This should be the drive that has the operating system installed on it, this is usually C: drive.

3.  You will see Basic Tests toolbar above Detected Drives, move the mouse pointer over this to open the test options.  Please click on Long Generic Test

4.  This will start the scan.  When the scan is complete you will see the result under Test Status , please post the results in your topic.

5.  The test will indicate either Pass or Fail.  Post the results of the scan in your topic.

6.  Click on Help, then click on View Log File.  If the scan failed take a screen shot of the Log File and post it in your topic.
