How To Repair Disk Errors And Bad Sectors
My computer went perfect a few days ago, but now it started to go so slow on booting progress and it uses 50-80 CPU useage while I got 3.2 GHz
I'm running windows Xp home and this problem started whenever I downloaded a new hardware and I tried to get on to a game and I got BSOD...Typically I go onto BIOS settings and edits soem things, and now it wont even boot my comp??
I download 2 video drivers, is that the problem?

If you "see" (use) bad sectors. . . Now there's the real problem and there's the point too. . . A bad sector is normal for 100% of hard drives; however, having the bad sector in use (visable/discoverable) is not normal at all. The SMART system is supposed to remove the bad sector from the catalog so that it can't be seen or used. If that doesn't work, then the disk manufacturer's utilities may have a repair option to remove the bad sector, and if the option is missing, then a fill zeros operation and then a FULL format, may allow SMART to kick in and remove the sector. If that doesn't work, then GRC SpinRite probably will work. Tolerances: Removing a sector shrinks storage space by a slight amount. After repair (removing bad sector from usage catalog), a hard drive should be retired when it has further decreased by bad sectors or if the problem increases. The point isn't bad sectors. All brand new hard drives have lots of bad sectors. There should be no bad sectors in the catalog--if not in catalog its impossible to "see" or use a bad sector, and thus the bad sector is irrelevant. The point is whether or not there is data stored on the bad sector.-reply by Daniel

Other than that you should download your hard drive makers official site for some disk checking and repaid utility. Some hard drive makers do offer disk check utility. These utilities scan your computer online or offline. Some manufacturers which offers such utilities are :
IBM / Hitachi Drive Fitness Test
Maxtor Maxblast 3
Western Digital Software & Drivers

I just aquired the errors 2503 and 2502 on my Windows 7 Home Premium OS. I can't install or uninstall downloads now. I have read many online tips and so far nothing will fix these errors.
Any help or suggestions I'll appreciate.
