Hi Sandfun,

This tutorial describes the procedure to recover one volume when

  • the volume was accidentally formatted
  • Windows reports the volume is "raw filesystem", or "not formatted"
  • An external drive failed, either flash (so called "thumb drive") or an hard disk connected using USB or FireWire enclosure.
  • MFT is corrupt on the NTFS volume, rendering filesystem partially or completely unreadable
The recovery is done in seven steps, requiring about eleven (11) mouse clicks.

Note: The older than current versions of ZAR might have been used to create the screenshots in this tutorial. We did not update the screenshots if there is no significant difference between older and current versions. If you see some option in the program which is not described in the tutorial, just leave it at its default setting.

Download and install ZAR just like you do with any regular program.
When you run it, ZAR displays the window like the one below:

Iced tea spilled on HP laptop, will not power on, please help?


Salvage the data from the drives and have them copied to your new laptop. At the very least you probably fried your motherboard & damaged your keyboard. To repair them is probably more costly than purchasing a new laptop(voice of experience). The drives may or may not work. Your main concern is the data. You can purchase a hard drive power adapter from ebay to power the removed laptop drive(s) and connect to a new computer via USB port to copy all of your files for about $25 and a little bit of time. Or have a computer shop do it for a fee.

My LG External HDD XD2 Is Not detected By My Laptop & Other Laptops Also. It Is Displaying A Message" USB DEVICE NOT Recognise" PLz Give Me Solution for This,


Hi
Firstly, remove the external Hard Drive from the Computer and restart your machine. Also try a different USB port. If this does not work, try and connect it to a different computer. You can also try a different USB cable that is compatible with your External Hard Drive. If the problem persists you'll need to determine if the problem is with the enclosure or with the Hard Drive itself. Depending on your computer expertise, I would recommend removing the Hard Drive from the enclosure and connecting it inside the computer. If it works when connected to the computer internally your enclosure is faulty and will need to be replaced. If you still can't access the Hard Drive, then I am afraid the Hard Drive has gone bad and the Hard Drive will need to be replaced. If you are uncertain on how to do this. rather take it to your local computer repair shop and have them test it for you.

How do you replace a Gateway LT1005u hard drive?


with the laptop upside down there will be a hard drive cover. On most Gateway machines, labels and stickers are often placed on the hard drive panel.
Remove the two screws. MAKE SURE you keep these screws in a safe place
Slide the enclosure out of the laptop.BE CAREFUL and slow as to NOT damage the drive.
Turn the enclosure over. The drive will be screwed to the enclosure. NOTE as This is actually an anti-static container, so again be careful when removing, to avoid static
Remove the screws to actually remove the drive. keep these screws as may be needed for the replacement hard drive

Hello.

Sorry you are having problems during the holiday season.

All may not be lost. If your hard drive (inside the laptop) is good, even tho the laptop won't power on, your pictures should be OK.

Have you tried connecting the laptop directly to the wall, in case you are connected to a power strip that's faulty.

Is the screen dark, but there is power to the laptop (lights on) ?

Have you tried connecting a monitor to the laptop (if you have one) to see if your display is bad ?

Have you tried connecting the laptop with the power adapter, but without the battery ?? That could determine a bad battery.

If you wiggle the power adapter at the point where it connects to your laptop and the power goes on and off, your power jack is faulty.

Lots of questions, I know. But, hopefully this will lead us in the right direction.

Need to recover files from totally dead PC


You can remove the desktop hard drive and install it into an external USB drive enclosure ($12 ~ $20 Best Buy, Fry's, OfficeMax/Depot).

You will now have an external USB drive that you can plug into your laptop. It will appear as Drive E:, most likely.

Hard drive crash, not usable at all; downloaded xp drivers and computer drivers but cannot get them installed. Hard drive not recognized.


When you install a new harddrive, it has no Operating System on it.
Windows XP and Windows Vista, are examples of an Operating System.

Each laptop manufacturer, has their own system of changing a laptop harddrive. Some allow you to press a key or two, to put the laptop in a state where it will save the basic Operating System files, and when you install the new harddrive, it will transfer them over to it.

Some laptop manufacturers do have this option.

You either have to take the harddrive out, install it into an external enclosure for a harddrive, (Uses a USB cable) Then attach the external enclosure via the USB cable, to another computer, and use a 'mirror' imaging program to save the Operating System to that computer.

Then the new harddrive is installed in that external enclosure, and the Operating System is 'mirrored' over to it.

Just information for you, as you cannot do this now with a crashed harddrive.
Your option now, is to buy a genuine copy of the Operating System you had on the laptop, and install it.
Not what you wanted to hear, huh?

You need to buy whatever version of Windows XP it had, (WinXP Home or WinXP Pro), or Windows Vista.
If it was Windows Vista, I suggest getting at least the Windows Vista Home Premium version.

I personally prefer Xp over Vista.
Tigerdirect.com, and Newegg.com, have these.
Look for Software>Operating Systems.

OR, you can simply put Ubuntu Linux on it for free.
