Hi axe0,

Sorry for not replying the past week. Was busy with preparing for overseas trip.

When I did the scanning the drive for errors, the desktop did not freeze.

However it froze when I tried to scan and attempt recovery of bad sector, and also scan and automatically attempt to fix errors.

Did you do that offline or online?

With 'froze' you mean it looked like nothing happened?

When scanning the drive for errors only and when scanning and attempt recovery of bad sectors, they were done online.

The scan and automatically attempt to fix errors was done offline.

By 'froze' I mean the cursor was not moving, and my keyboard could not work. Even the lights for switching num lock and caps could not be changed no matter many times I pressed the keys.

Freezes are another indication of a failing hard drive in this case, the best thing to do is backup & replacement.

So I should just replace the Samsung 300GB hard disk for this case then?

Hi axe0,

Sorry for not replying for the past month. I took out the faulty disk drive and the desktop worked normally.

Thanks a lot for your help!
