Hey guys, so my PC specs are as follow:
Core i7 930 2.8ghz
18gb Corsair XMS3 DDR3 PC1600
1tb HDD Parition into 850gb and 50gb (windows)
Recently, in order to save some energy I set windows to sleep after 30minutes. Little did I know, it would turn into a nightmare. After 30 minutes the PC will shutdown and will not resume with the power button. Switching the power supply on and off seems to resume the power switch function and windows begins to resume however....It takes approximately 5 minutes on the windows logo screen, then 1 minute on the Login and then a disastrous 15-25 minutes to load. After this the PC is EXTREMELY Sluggish! Takes 5 minutes just to right click or to open control panel or any window for that matter.
Things to note:
-50GB Windows partition only has 1gb remaining!
-MY SECOND PARTITION CANNOT BE SEEN! The drive shows up but cannot chkdsk nor access it. 0bytes under properties!!!
-Under Event viewer/System : ERROR - DISK: The device, \Device\Harddisk0\DR0, has a bad block.
Steps I've taken so far after doing research:
1) I checked HKLM/..WindowsNT/..Winlogon/ shell properties and its only set to explorer.exe
2) I've tried loading in safe mode with the same results , if not worse! Completely inoperable!
3) Run Safemode with command and executed CHKDSK on C: drive with not much result.
4)Checked Event Viewer (after waiting 10minutes for it to load) and there are some 58,096 events under 'system'. Quite a lot under security. Not very much under startup.
5) With Task Manager open the CPU Usage is 0%. No hiccups in performance or memory usage.
What do I do...I cannot access my main partition! Do i have to clean install and lose all my stuff? Because running a HDD recovery software will take ages to load with these issues..
what is: ERROR - DISK: The device, \Device\Harddisk0\DR0, has a bad block.
