it tells me to run chkdsk, but that hasnt worked for me, i run it (with perameter /f) but on the first of five passes, it tells me file segment 4404 and 4425 are unreadable and it tries to fix them but it can, so its always aborted. i know my hdd is failing, but how can i fix this?
 
You're going to have to try to recover the file(s) from the bad area(s) of the hard drive. I heard SpinRite is a very good program for doing just that.

Now, does chkdsk abort itself or do you abort it? If you're aborting it... don't. If it's aborting itself, you'll have to use another program like SpinRite.
