Hi Julio,

Hard Disk Failure is one of the problems of a computer. Hard drives are sensitive and delicate in nature. This is where the data stored and it is also vulnerable of easily gets corrupted. Usually this is cause by Virus and Trojan infections.

Here are some steps and suggestions to prevent Hard Disk Failure.

Shutdown your personal computer properly by not to do a hard reboot as much as you can. This is the major cause of hardware failure. Computer get knock out or fell down due to accident strike and a sudden power outage will happen. Often cause by short circuit and a failure of this Hard Drive. So, using UPS uninterrupted power supply is a must.

Step aside your computer away from hot and cold temperature as this may cause erosions of parts inside.

There can be some voltage error in your area which can damage your hard disk. May be there is some error in your power supply. So you need to check is that your hard disk is getting perfect power supply. If you are not a technician then consult a technical and make sure that your hard disk is getting a perfect voltage supply. Because voltage supply can damage your power supply. Also check the data bus or data cable in your computer and make sure it is working problem. Make a full scan to your computer also and make sure that there is no virus in your computer. Make a disk scan to check you hard disk by going to START and then to RUN and here type CMD and now type chkdsk and press enter. It will check your disk and will make it error free. After you go through these steps you will be more protective with your hard drive.

That’s pretty bad if you already replaced your hard drive three times in eight months. This only means you are not using your computer properly because you frequently replace your hard drive. When you use a computer, you need to shut it down properly once you are finished using it.

Don’t just unplug it from the power after each use without shutting it down because it will damage the hard drive. Improper shut down of the computer can corrupt the operating system and any applications running aside from the damage it can cause physically to the hard drive. Next time, once you are finished working on your computer, shut it down properly.

This makes sure that all files and applications are closed before the operating system shuts down the machine. To shut down the computer properly, once you are finished working on your computer, click “Start”, “Turn Off Computer” then select “Turn Off”. Wait until your CPU shuts down completely before unplugging it from the power.
