My son was using his laptop which is running windows 10. It got banged near the keyboard right around the HDD. ON a reboot he got a BSOD. I took the hdd out of the system and ran the sentinel HDD software with the drive in an external box via usb2 connection. It found that there were 129 bad sectors and 400 week sectors. Can the drive be fixed or should it be replaced. I tried using the repair tools from windows but it seem to run for a long period of time and doesn't seem to be going anywhere. I could run it over night to see if it advances or not. I am running it via my laptop so I am not sure it that is slowing it down or not.
Open to any suggestions and help.
