    Here is the step by step.

    Chez :cheers:


    PowerMax

    Software Downloads


    Download PowerMax


    File Name: powermax.exe
    File Download Size: 928 KB
    File Version: 4.06
    Revision Date: 06/02/03
    Compatible Operating Systems: WindowsNT, WindowsXP, Windows2000, WindowsME, Windows98, Windows95B, OS/2


    The PowerMax utility is designed to perform diagnostic read/write verifications on Maxtor and Quantum hard drives. These tests will determine hard drive integrity. The PowerMax utility is effective on all ATA (IDE) hard drives with a capacity greater than or equal to 500 MB. Maxtor recommends the use of this utility for troubleshooting potential hard drive problems. These problems include, but are not limited to the following:

    Potential hard drive surface problems (e.g., bad clusters, bad sectors, partitioning/formatting problems, etc.).
    Drive recognition problems (e.g. hard drive that is not recognized by the operating system).
    Software removal.
    Note: PowerMax v4.06 will not detect Ultra ATA hard disks connected to motherboards with embedded NVIDIA chipsets (SATA drives are supported). A new version to address this issue is currently in development and is slated for release soon. Please check the PowerMax download page periodically for updates. All versions of PowerMax prior to 4.06 are no longer supported, it is recommended that you update to version 4.06 before testing your hard disk.

    It is recommended to run PowerMax on all Maxtor hard drives prior to warranty replacement.




    Step-by-Step Instructions - Downloading PowerMax

    NOTE: The PowerMax download is a self-extracting file.


    After downloading to your Windows desktop, insert a clean formatted floppy diskette into your A:\ drive.
    Double-click on the PowerMax diskette creator icon.
    When the Maxtor pop-up screen displays, click on the "Create Floppy" option.

    The files will extract on to the floppy diskette, creating a bootable version of the PowerMax utility. Do not download PowerMax directly to a floppy. PowerMax extracts from a Win32 environment only and will not extract from 16-bit DOS mode.

    WARNING: ALL DATA WILL BE LOST WHEN PERFORMING THE LOW LEVEL FORMAT QUICK OR FULL OPTIONS.

    Maxtor recommends that users backup all critical data and removing other hard drives before performing this test.

    System Boot and Test Initialization


    After extracting the PowerMax files to the floppy diskette, restart Windows with the PowerMax floppy in the A:\ drive.
    When the system restarts it will boot to the PowerMax diagnostic program

    NOTE: PowerMax does not run from within Windows 95, 98/ME, NT, 2000, or XP. Do not try to run the utility from an MS-DOS prompt window.

    For additional information please refer to the PowerMax User Guide
    :cheers:

    Come on now Beefy.... I posted it right below that in the HEREEEEE link. ;)

    This
    Something to try - FDISK / *insert your favourite partition program here*
    Wasn't either. LOL ;)

    I gave him Powermax, you got him Maxblast. He should be set now...

    Chez

    Thats why I like this place. You get to see a LOT of different ways and solutions to the problem. Sometimes one way isn't always the best, fastest, or right. In the end though, you will learn something new everyday. :)

    I think it's more the fact that he didn't know what exactly he was looking for to download.

    Plus I opened the thread before you edited / posted the extra stuff... so I missed your posts. :)

    If it's still under warranty, send it back. If not, then there's not a lot you can do. Basically you'll be using it at your own risk.

    you should be happy that maxtor gave you that error code and saved you an accidental data loss. i had a bad seagate drive and that test showed me that drive don't have any problem.
