Hi all, I have a HP 430 laptop which was working fine till 4 days ago after which I started having some hard disk related problems. Some files were not loading and I checked with HD Tune pro. On the 1st day, there were 2 reallocated sectors. The next day it was 21. The 3rd day it was 48 and now it is 51. The laptop was given to us by our college. I contacted the person who takes charge of these and he said that he can't do anything until the machine(HDD) is fully dead. How long will the HDD last? Should I destroy it deliberately? If yes then how? Also any means to repair it? I tried Seatools for DOS and Windows but in vain.
