You can try to physically remove the hard drive and install it in another similar laptop and get your data that way. If you can find a a two drive bay laptop to install it in just put it in the second bay and go into it that way (this would be the best solution). If this doesn't work you may be able to get one of those external hardrive cases and try to get one for the hard drive format you have (if possible). The only issue with that is most of these units (that I have seen anyway) are meant for regular desktop hard drives. If the data you have is extremely important you could send your drive out to a data restorer but this is very expensive and only recommended if you have really important stuff on their. Good luck, hope this helps.

Buy an external caddy/docking station for your hard disk (IDE or SATA), take the drive out and attach it directly to another PC and access it from windows on the other machine to save your data.

Hard Drive Crash - wants to re-install how to retrieve data to laptop computer


If the HDD has failed you can't retrieve the data off the failed drive. You can send the HDD into a data recovery company and they will read the disk in the drive and put the info on DVD and sent it to you, but that is the only way. The service is quite expensive. Just do a google search for failed hard drive data recovery.

If the motherboard on a laptop has water damaged, can you retrieve data.


If your hard disk did not get the water, you can retrive your data.

Get a Laptop IDE or SATA Adapter remove your hard disk from the faulty laptop and connect the hard disk to the adapter. Connect the adapter to a good system using a usb cable.

You should be able to retrive your data.
Good luck.

The bios test of hard disk test is failed wht can i do now


If the hard disk has failed, and you want the data off of the hard disk, you have two choices..

Purchase a extender to allow you to read the hard disk and also purchase a data recovery program to get the data off the hard disk...

Or google data recovery service and find one that can retrieve data of of bad hard drives..

Either way afterward you will need to purchase a new hard drive.. They have drives as low as 30 dollars online that can be purchased and then installed.

You will need to reinstall windows on the new hard drive you get..

Ultimately you will have to weigh the cost of repairing the computer ( purchasing a hardrive and purchasing a new copy of windows)

Versus purchasing a new computer.

Is there any way to retrieve data from hard drive before sending it to the HP repair center? HP laptop recalled. No monitor. External monitor does not work either.


The only way is to remove the hard disk from your laptop. It is usually easy. Remove the cover from the back of your laptop, take the hard disk, put it in a rack, then transfer the data on another computer.
