I contacted gateway and they mentioned trying a prog called 'GWSCAN 5.12'...I downloaded it and burned it to a cd...after running it, the first test said 'no errors found' but then after running the extended test for 1hour, it came back with the following...'Errors found - the drive has been repaired. Error/Status Code = 0223'
And thats it. After reading that it said the errors are repaired, I figured restarting the pc would work...but it still has the same problem...What should I do now?
I will try and find Knoppix, and burn it tonight. Thnks again thus far...
