My lap top has been doing weird stuff so I ran sfc then chkdsk. It locked at the very end of chkdsk so I ran CrstalDisk and see a big yellow warning about "Current Pending Sector Count", the value is 1. So I have one possible bad sector, or it may be OK after it is rewritten too.
Most of what I have found about CPSC is the HDD is ready to fail, digging deeper I find that is not necessarily the case, about a 60% chance the sector well be OK and if bad, it is marked bad and reallocated. People with SMART drives what are your "Current Pending Sector Count" and "Reallocated Sectors Count" reports?
I really don't want to go buy a HDD for this LT.
