I have a problem with my laptop ACER Aspire 5742G running Windows 7.
The PC is very slowwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww…
I have checked for Virus, Adware, Spyware, Malware,… it seems OK
I checked the drive and defragmented it.
The system is still very slow !
I ran CHKDSK c: /F /R (At boot time). It completed successfully, but I noticed that at some places, it stopped for sometimes (Suspect it was finding and reallocating bad sectors).
I downloaded WD Data Lifeguard Diagnostics and ran the quick test.
This test is supposed to take 2 minutes, but it completed (successfully) after 26 minutes.
When I look at the smart data, it indicates:
- “Reallocated sector count” has a threshold of 140 (Value is 200.
- “Spin retry count” has a threshold of 51 (Value is 100)
I plan to run an extended test next night…
I suspect my drive is still usable but in bad shape, and I would better plan a replacement. Am I right ?
If not what can I do ?
Thanks for any advice, Bernard
