Hi I have a Medion MD 97320. Uhmm... I'm not a computer person so I don't know all about the technical stuff, so I hope you guys can help me out.

So I was watching a youtube vid last night and then the computer suddenly froze but I can still move my mouse, but I can't click on anything. The only thing I could do is press the power button to shut it off. I decided to go to sleep because it was late. Then the next day, when the computer got to the point where I need to chose weather I want to boot in safe mode or what ever or start windows normally, I chose to start it normally, but then it will say it like you need to use the disk to repair damage, but I can't find my disk cause I just moved so I decided to reformat it cause I have nothing important installed anyway. But when I press F3 to start recovery when it's booting, it will ask me for the language(normal), then comes the warning(normal), then comes the warning again(normal), then comes the final warning(normal), there are 3 options, abort, back and finish, i selected finish. Then I see ghost for 3 seconds and then it will go to black screen and say 'ABORT: 29004, Read sector failure, result = 1, drive = 0, sectors 456057496 to 45605760 RECOVERY FAILED!' This have never happened before when I reformatted my computer before

Does anybody know what to do??? plz help

Your hard drive may have failed (which they all do eventually) so you will need to confirm that by running the drive manufacturer's diagnostic DOS-based software from a bootable CD.
The software is supplied as a CD image (ISO file). Use nero or something similar to create the CD from that ISO file.

Links are here: Hard Drive Diagnostics Tools and Utilities (Storage) - TACKtech Corp.

If you are unable to determine the make of drive, you can use Seagate SeaTools for DOS which can test any brand: | Seagate

Make sure you download the DOS version (not the Windows version).
