Fix Corrupted Set Of Files In Hard Drive

This is with the Studio 1535(I'm not sure if this problem is the same to fix as it is with other studios?! Thought it was worth asking. Just recently hard drive diagnostic tested it, after not being able to by pass the "Loading Windows" screen and the test told me that I had about 10 files that were corrupted. Anywhere to even start with this? Thank You Very Much.

Boot into your system disk and select repair drive. If that fails I think you will have to reload your operating system. Ralph

If you have important data you need to recover, I would suggest you get an ubuntu live cd, the live cd loads up using your ram, so you wouldn't use your hard disk, only when you're accessing the files using this live cd. After it's loaded, all you need to do is save your files into a flash drive. very simple. You can get ubuntu here http://www.ubuntu.com/desktop/get-ubuntu...

good luck.

If recovering your laptop is a priority, you will need to remove the Hard Drive, and get a SATA to USB adapter, and if you can, pull all the data off. If this does not work, then you will need to send it in to a data recovery center where you will spend loads if you really need to (7k-ish).

What OS do you have? Assuming you have Windows 7, follow these instructions. However, I would recommend using the command : "chkdsk C: /r /f" without quotation marks, instead of chkdsk C: /r. It does a more thorough check.

In the end, if the cause of these corrupted files is because of a drop, you may need to replace the HDD

If this doesn't work, try using the startup repair selection, which I think ralph was referring to.
