    Hard Disk Failure Imminent, a question...


    so i've been dealing with having to hit enter and F1 on startup for 3 years now, cus of this error mesage: hard disk failure is imminent, blah blah blah. it happened like 2 months after i bought this new HP. but i've had no problems with my hard drive, other than just having to hit 'enter/F1' at startup. and Windows find no errors when doing a check disk.

    so is there anyway to clear the error, so can start my pc without having to hit enter/F1 every time? i honestly don't think there's anything wrong with it. like i said, i got that error 3 years ago

    thanks!

    :)

  2. Hard disk failure is imminent.

    When starting my computer I sometimes get a message that Hard Disk Failure Imminent. Please back up your hard disk and have it replaced. Press F10 for Setup. F2 to continue. The first time I got this screen it clicked on F2 and Windows opened and all
    seemed fine. Now I have the same black screen with same message but when clicking on F2, the computer does nothing. I have not back up my hard disk. What can I do to save this situation or am I just out of luck?

  3. Hard disk failure is imminent.

    Greg, you have lost me with all this info. First I cannot seem to get to anything on my computer. Tried to shut down and reopen and it goes right back to the black screen with the Hard disk failure is imminent message. I am not even certain that my wireless
    keyboard is even working now. What a mess. If I cannot get to any diagnostics on my computer, how do I begin to try and address the problem?

    Windows 10 upgrade problem...Hard Disk Failure Imminent!

    As suggested I have waited 7 days and rerun Chkdsk on my problem Samsung laptop again (22Oct2016). It again took 5 hours to run and spent much of that time stuck at 11% complete. No more bad clusters found (I think), but the computer is still issuing
    imminent hard disk failure warnings and running slowly.

    Links to the latest Chkdsk report:

    Chkdsk20161022110138.log

    I also tried the Samsung utility, but the 2008 website sent me to Seagate which did not accept the serial numbers from the back of my computer. I tried to find alternatives unsuccessfully?

    Not sure what to do now; can I repair this hard disk? If so how?
