I've had issues with my HP laptop.  Primarily related to overheating.  I'm on motherboard #2, and the hard drive is still trying to crash.  I know it's a bad read head (bad sectors show up frequently, sometimes accompanied by an audible "bad" sound from the hd), but they refused to replace.  Instead, they reformatted.  Now, could someone please explain how reformatting the hard drive repairs a bad read head???  :laughing:

Why don't you get another hard drive?


It was under warranty when I sent it in for a hard drive replacement.  But as I said... I ended up with a reformatted hard drive instead!

It's not my primary machine, and no important data resides on the drive.  I basically just keep it for travel.  I've been able to repair the bad sectors and keep on working.  A new 2.5" laptop drive would probably cost more than the machine is worth at this point.
