If your harddrive is just sezied up from worn out barrings you can try a trick by sticking it in the freezer for a couple of hours then as fast as you can reconnect your drive and copy your data to a new drive before it has a chance to seze up again. failing that. there are several hard drive recover programs that can reconsruct your drive, however not all data can be recovered. hope this helps.

Is the data on it really worth paying to get it off? There are places to get your data off a crashed hard drive, but they are really expensive and I'd suggest to shop around before picking any one company. There is no easy fix to this solution unfortunately (Sorry, I know you didn't want to hear this)

Try connecting it to some other computer, and see if you can retrieve it. Also try a different OS too if it does not work.

Hp notebook has broken screen and hardrive errors, how can boot or rescover from other laptop in order to instruct the broken pc to bootup from the connected other laptop


Solutions:-
1. Plug in an external monitor to replace the laptop screen, then you should be able to see something.
2. Go to a web site called knopper.net on anther PC, and download a "live" copy. Burn it on to a CD and boot from it, on your PC.
Then you will have a working PC and can start to recover your data on to flash drive, before trying to fix the hard disc errors.
Knoppix is a Linux operating system, but contains facilities to fix the hard drive, but it could damage your data, so save as much as you can before attempting to fix hard drive.

Seagate external hardrive


Try to plug it into more than 1 computer other than your PC. If it works, then the problem is the interface between the hard drive and your computer and if it really doesn't work, you're solution is have it recover by data recovery experts. Here are a few things you need to keep in mind, on taking your first steps in such a situation: Do not open the hard disk and try to repair it on your own. If you're data is really, very valuable, don't use automatic data recovery tools. Before you bring it, wrap the defective units in anti-static envelope if possible, bubble wrap it, and seal package securely. You also had an option to recover it on your own by using known data recovery software but it's risky compared if you bring it to a data recovery experts. If the problem is within the mechanical parts of a hard drive, there's a possibility that you will not attain a 98% chance of recovery if you do it on your own.
