Windows 7: Windows 7 random unexpected shutdowns, cannot find cause

You did buy a battery which is meant for your exact model, correct? Always cross-check several different ways to make sure the model number of PC, model number of Battery, etc. match. If in doubt ask back here as there will be someone who's done it before.

If the battery ruined your mobo then I doubt it would run.

If Win7 stops working then the next steps are here for Troubleshooting Windows 7 Failure to Start

To make sure you have a perfect install in the first place then stick very closely to the steps in Clean Reinstall Windows 7 which has been used by over a million consumer without a single complaint.

Hi Addram, your above statement in case of physical sectors is correct, but yes in case of logical sectors, it can be repaired. I have repaired the logical bad sectors of my 1 TB hard disk and now it is working perfectly.

Actually, it's a yes and no. It depends on the type of bad sector, physical or logical. See the following link for further details;

Maybe I should have explained it further, but others have and i`m glad you understand.

They are also called Hard and Soft Bad sectors and I was referring to Hard Bad sectors.

I had 2 1 TB drives with 2 Bad sectors on each, care to guess where they are now ???

I use a program I like very much Called Hard Disk Sentinel, it gives me the performance and health of every drive in my system, and of course it gives much much more info then just that on each drive.

And I just noticed my OCZ Vertex has dropped to 99% Health. Oh No (Nothing to do with bad sectors, it`s an ssd, totally normal)
