Life expectency of hdd is 3 -5 years but just to make sure go to hitachie's website or just google drive fitness test and burn it as a bootable image, boot your machine from the disk ( drive fitness test) and run the test, look out for the error code at the end of the test, anything other than 0x00 means the hdd is faulty

On my IBM t21 laptop when I press the power button the hdd light flashes ones and then it just gose off Help me pls


This usually means thehard disk has failed or the hard disk needs re-seating or the disk controlleris faulty. First - re-seat the harddisk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot andgo into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If itdoesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty. Next - to check if the harddrive is faulty, remove the hard drive and insert it into an USB hard drive adapter and connect it to a workingcomputer's USB port. If this computer cannot see itas an USB mass storage device and you cannot open the various folders and fileson this drive, then this confirms the hard drive is faulty. Then the hard drive needsto be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer orlaptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioningcomputer/laptop again.

The proper boot device is your hard drive, when you boot hit F2 while it is booting up and it will bring up the screen to change boot devices select the hard drive and save the settings and this should work if it dont it is possible that your hard drive has bit the dust.

1) Restart your computer and when it's booting up press F8 and try and get it into safe mode.

2) Restart your computer press F8 and select last good configuration.

If methods 1 or 2 worked you can ignore the others.
NOTE: you might have to press a different F key then F8, but most times it's F8.

3) Get a hard drive enclosure and turn you internal hard drive into an external hard drive DO NOT FORMAT ANYTHING. From there just back up all your important data and return you computer to factory settings. (http://lifehacker.com/software/hard-driv…

4) Download Linux on a CD and use that as a live CD to boot up your computer and save your files. (http://lifehacker.com/software/disk-reco…

Laptop won't turn on


keep pressing f12 when the computer first starts up this should show a list of boot devices, choose the hard drive. if the boot menu doesnt show up youll need to go into your bios setup and make sure the hard drive is the first boot device. if it still wont boot then you likely have a faulty hard drive or connector. Im guessing you dont have a backup of your assignment? You may need to take out the hard drive and have someone who knows what they are doing plug it into a desktop computer to retrieve your documents off it.
