When you say that your computer is not working, could you be more specific to the details as to what is exactly happening? Was it not turning on? Were there any beeping sounds? Was the screen freezing when you boot the system? Were there any error messages when you try to access any programs?

All of these are symptoms of computer with bad sectors and we need to isolate the issue further to know if it is a hardware or software issue that is causing the problem. That way we will know what steps need to be done to have it resolve and your computer fixed.

There are many reasons why your computer is not working. it doesn't mean you have a bad sector that's why your computer is not working. Please provide more information about your computer so we can help you. Thank you and god bless.

I’m sorry but a motherboard can never have bad sectors. I think you are confused. You can only get or develop bad sectors on storage devices like a hard drive, USB flash drive, USB external hard drive, diskette, and others. If you say your computer doesn’t work, you need to check different things to find out what causes the problem.

Not all problems on the computer are caused by bad sectors and also, even if your hard drive has bad sectors, it will still not prevent your computer from working. If your computer doesn’t boot, check if there is a USB flash drive inserted among the USB ports on your computer.

If there is a USB flash drive inserted, most of the time your computer will attempt to boot using the USB device. And if it doesn’t have an operating system installed, the booting process will discontinue and an error is displayed on the screen. To fix this, just remove the USB flash drive and restart the computer.
