Hard drive issues: Bad block

In the last month or so, my hard drive would randomly start churning and it'd seem like it would struggle. You could hear it churning in a repeatable fashion:

churn..
(1/2 second wait)
churn..
(1/2 second wait)
churnchurnchurn
...
repeat

Anyhow, I looked at the event viewer in XP tonight and get a log like this. Bear with me, as it's only a snippet. The log goes on for pages upon pages for weeks. Take note that at some times, it occurs exactly at 1 hour intervals, usually when the computer is idle (when I'm at work, asleep, etc.).

Anybody have any ideas? Here is the error message that comes up for every one of the disk errors:

The device, \Device\Harddisk0\D, has a bad block.
Something tells me that because of the time intervals of one hour, that it might be screensaver related. I have no other scheduled tasks on my computer other than the screensaver/power settings. I have it configured so the only action taken is that my screen is turned off after 20 minutes of idle time. No system standby, no screensaver, etc. This problem also rarely happens when I'm using the computer actively. Only when I leave it idle for a little bit.

sounds like you have a drive that is going bad

at the very least run a checkdsk on the drive and see if it finds anything.

If you have a newer machine with a SMART enabled drive you can install something like this

http://www.ariolic.com/activesmart/

and see if it finds any errors.

all drive manufactuers also have their own diag tools, for ex here is WD's

http://support.wdc.com/download/index.asp#diagutils

find what brand you have and find that makers diag program and run it on your drive.

ditto. Also, I would make sure anything important(documents, pics, porn, etc) is backed up just in case the HD dies on you.

I'm assuming that a chkdsk /f doesn't fix bad blocks, no?

You are the winner of a bad hard drive!

back everything up you can while you can and get a new drive, you are not going to permanently fix this situation with software...

Eh, everything on the computer works just fine, I have no problems burning CD-Rs.

Gateway just told me to run their proprietary scandisk software. I have a hunch that I should backup things first.

actually, hd's will usually either fail w/in the first 6 months, or else they usually last a few years, so it's good that it failed now, since it's still under warranty.

Just an update --

This problem was fixed. Gateway replaced the hard drive about 11 months ago. Thanks for all your help and concern.

I keep waiting for my hardrive to go bad to get a new system. It will be 6 years old in January 2005. I guess they dont make things like they used to. I heard computers dont even come with a floppy drive anymore!!! I guess next thing they will do is replace Win 98 with something new.

Windows 98 is good, but not as good as Windows 3.11.
