I have a laptop that has stopped working and after a time of testing and debugging I found that the hard drive has malfunctioned.
Specifically, I have used Sea Tools for DOS and discovered that the hard has "bad sectors". The Sea Tools application has an option to try to fix this but could not fix them.
I have also used a few other diagnosing tools that found problems with the disk. Specifically, I have used one tool that analyzed the whole disk and found many unresponsive sectors (over 20) among the sectors that were responding well.
Is there a way to make the disk functional ? Is there a way to fix or remove them from use ?
Edit: I have tried different application to format the disk but they do not work. They return an error that there is a problem with the disk.
