Trying to scan and repair with HDD regenerator and I get an error...
Hard drive not ready! Switch off your computer, then switch it on to reset the system. After the system is reset, start the process again.

It also says if your SATA controller works in AHCI mode, change it to compatible IDE mode in the system bios.   I don't know what that means,

It says I have 4 disk drives to scan, two are 298 gig and two are 3812 mb. It is a laptop with one hard drive, I guess, I can scan the small ones no problem
