My desk top computers screen went black, can my data be save on the hard drive and how can i take it off


Not posting the model number of the Dell desktop computer, get's you generic information.

The model number can be found on the back of the computer, next to the Windows product key.

Moving on......


Suggest use an external enclosure.
Remove the harddrive from the computer, and install it in an external enclosure.

The external enclosure has a USB cable, and you just plug it into any available USB port, on a working computer.

Then go to My Computer, or Computer; depending on which Windows operating system the computer has; and double-click on the drive letter that corresponds with the external enclosure.

(WinXP: Start > My Computer
Win Visa / Win 7: Windows logo button > Computer )

Examples of drive letters;

C: Drive = Harddrive of the computer you are using

D: Drive = Separate partition on the harddrive for Restore files, or is for the optical drive (CD/DVD drive)

E: Drive = Optical drive generally, but may be the drive letter that corresponds to a Removable Device.
The external enclosure you plugged in, is a removable device.

None of the above is 'etched in stone', except the C:Drive
Things change from computer to computer, and the way you may have it set up.

Easy way to know?
Before plugging in external enclosure, open My Computer, or Computer.
Look at what each drive letter corresponds to.

Now when you plug the external enclosure in, you will see the change; and know which drive letter corresponds to the external enclosure you just plugged in.

Double-click on the name next to the drive letter, that corresponds to the external enclosure you plugged in.

Go into My Documents, or Documents.
Again, depends on which version of Windows you have.
Win XP = Start > My Documents
Win Vista / Win 7 = Windows logo button > Documents

Now open each folder, until you get the personal files you want to keep.
Photos, music, videos, documents you have created, or downloaded.

You cannot remove programs, or applications. Just your personal stuff.
(You can, but that is for a separate discussion)

Also open Downloads.
(WinXP = Click on Start > My Documents > DOUBLE-click on Downloads.

Win Vista / Win 7 = Click on the Windows logo button (Start), click on Documents, click on Downloads.

Harddrives are measured in Width.
2-1/2 inches across for a laptop harddrive. 2.5 inches.
3.5 inches for a desktop harddrive.

Don't know what Dell this is again, don't have the model number.

Cannot tell you if the harddrive is an IDE (PATA) unit, or a SATA unit.

So you will need either a 3.5 IDE (PATA) external enclosure,
OR,
a 3.5 SATA external enclosure.

There are external enclosures that are 3.5 and IDE/SATA, also.

Basic examples,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Parallel_ATA

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Serial_ATA


Easy way to identify what type technology is used, for the harddrive in your computer; IDE/PATA, or SATA;

Power cable for an IDE/PATA harddrive,

Power cable for a SATA harddrive,

Can't read HD-- I/O error


"Joecolvette" has probably got it right, I've seen this before. The HDD enclosure circuit board has a fault. Can be resolved by replacing the enclosure. Plenty on ebay, just ensure you buy one with the correct HDD interface (Sata or IDE).

Alternatively, if you have a tower with a spare port, you could take the HDD out of the caddy, install it in the tower as a "Slave" (check jumper settings) ensuring the system drive is set to "Master". Then you can check whether the HDD itself is at fault.

My HDD Seagate Momentus 5400.6 500GB is not recognized by win7. I have connected it like a ex USD HDD, but there is no USB devices in Device manager. The hdd is clicking -1sec click, 0,5sec off. Thanks,...


Hi, it might be a file system error.
You could try removing the hdd from the usb enclosure and connect it directly to your pc via SATA.
(power off both of them before doing so)
If it really is the file system then scan disk should repair it automatically when turning on the pc.
Then if the pc recognizes it you can put it back in the usb enclosure.
Good luck!

You need a 2.5" inch SATA to USB external harddrive enclosure.

since its a laptop hard drive you need a small case.

HDD error no hard drive found, a new hard drive was installed but the result was the same


If system has a SATA HDD and you are using WIndows XP, you may need to load a SATA controller driver before the HDD controller will be recognized by the Winodws setup. Windows XP will require the driver from a floppy diskette, Vista will load from USB or any other type of drive

Philips Mobile Storage Device SPD5300CC/96K Incompatible XP?


After consultation with the shop which sold the drive, they helped me work out the problem. Which was that the drive I was attempting to use in the Philips enclosure, had an OS on it, which was conflicting with the OS on my current HDD. So, that particular drive will need to be connected another way to access the information.
