That doesn't look good...

Reallocated Sector Count means you have Bad sectors.... the Raw value 28 is in Hex .... and when you convert that to decimal its 40 which is close to the Threshold of 50... this is a warning sign for your HDD life

You could do a chkdsk or use the Seagate seatools to do the test to check for errors

In anycase i would suggest you do backup of your data....

I had initially suspected the HD, however I feel kind of foolish as the chkdsk didn't show anything. However, even after a restore the computer will not boot. I ran the chkdsk from the command prompt on my install disk.

Here is the results of the chkdsk(typed up while reading it)



The type of the file system is ntfs.

After rebooting when the seatools didnt work my computer started right up. So i downloaded seatools for windows as opposed to the dos version.

It passed the long test, short test and the s.m.a.r.t test. Now what?
