How to format and fix Bad Sectors on a Notebook computer with No Floppy or CD ??
Posted on 2004-10-10
Hi... I've an old notebook computer ( PII 366 MHz, 128 MB RAM, 6.0 GB ,Network Ehernet Card, Fax/Modem) and I've a really hard problem which is :
I had some bad sectors caused my operating system ( MS Windows Millenium ) to be unstable and about to collapse and lose all my critical data & files.
Due to some circumstances I've some problems with my Floppy Drive and it can't accept any Floppy Diskettes... Also my CD-Rom Drive can't read many CDs so I can't boot with a CD.
The problem is that I'm in a place TOO Far from any Maintanence & Support Centre and I don't have time to fix my notebook.
Now I want to format my BOOT Drive and fix the bad sectors and then setup a new installation of Windows Millenium, But most of the programs in the market requires Floppy Drive to perform a test on the bad sectors... So what is the solution ??
Please, guide me to any program or materials to solve my urgent case.
