Supposed Hard Disk Failure in Windows 7
I have indeed attempted to search for such a problem, but seemingly, but parameters suck. In the event that there is a fix for this that has been found, if someone would be kind enough to point me in that direction, it'd be greatly appreciated, and sorry for any time wasted. However, here I go...
Today I downloaded, as a student, Windows 7 from the Microsoft store. All was fine at first. However, a few hours later, it told me that I was having a hard drive problem.
It says something along the lines of "Windows is Detecting a Hard Drive Failure," and asks me if I'd like to back-up any files (I did so when I updated the operating system).
I searched Google for an answer but everyone seemed to suggest that it was indeed failing and that one should replace it. However, I'm highly certain that it's not failing. The computer is rather new. Also, everyone else had the SAME problem ONCE they updated. Is this a widely known problem and is there a fix? Would formatting the hard drive fix things?
I'm running Windows 7 Home Premium. My processor is an Intel Pentium Dual CPU T2390 @ 1.86 GHz 1.87 GHz. I have 2.00 GB of ram on a 32-bit operating system. It is a laptop, an Dell Inspiron 1525. If any other information is needed just let me know. Hopefully, this can be fixed.
Thanks for anyone's time.
