Question about Computers & Internet
I have been trying to reformat my laptop but have been unable to get some drivers to install. I have a dell and am running vista. I began running tests from diagnostics and everything passes until it gets to the SATA Disk. They all fail. Tell me I can recover this and I don't have to replace my harddrive. If I can recover this how. Please advise.
Sorry to be the bearer of bad news and please don't give me a bad rating for this but unfortunately you do need to replace the hard drive. Chances of you recovering the data depends on what is failing in the hard drive. You can hook it up as a data drive once you get the replacement drive up and operational and see if you can extract your data off of it.
Thanks and please take a moment to rate as fixya.
