Hi, I just recently posted a problem with my device manager page being blank. I also went to a person that i know that knows a little bit about computers and they suggested that I use this software program called active file recovery. That spyware that i had when it was deleted that it might have taken a file with it. So i dowloaded the program. And have it scanning my Hard Disc. But I have found that a person named Rigel posted an answer to my device manager problem. But now that I have started up this program, I noticed that it has status so far:

NTFS Status {Bad}
FAT32 Status {Poor}
and so on with each sector most are poor.

I have no idea what all this means.Can someone fill me in. Does this mean that i need a new hard drive?

Emachines T6522
AMD Athlon™ 64 processor
2.19 GHz, 896 MB of RAM
Microsoft Windows XP
Media Center Edition
Verison 2002
Service Pack 2

Defrag says I have in NTFS Capacity 182 GB- Free Space 157 GB and % Free Space is 86%
FAT32 is Capacity 4.15 GB- Free Space is 1.21 GB and % Free Space is 29%


PS I cant get a hold of my buddy to ask him this question?

Try running chkdsk on the drive, which will locate any bad sectors.

Go Start > Run and type "chkdsk /r". It may ask for a reboot.
