This kind of problem sometimes happens if the operating system files to start up on your laptop hard drive get corrupted. See if you can find instructions on youtube to take the hard drive out of your laptop, or see if there is a screw that holds it in your laptop. You will need to purchase a USB to IDE/SATA cable adapter to connect your laptop hard drive to another, working computer. Once the screw is out, and you remove the laptop hard drive, then plug one cable (IDE/SATA) into your hard drive, and the other end (USB) to the second computer that is working. You will also need to connect a power cable from your laptop hard drive to a separate power supply that comes in the USB to IDE/SATA cable kit. When the cables are connected, if your hard drive is usable, you should be able to see all the files from your laptop hard drive on the second computer. Now, you can copy them off before reinstalling your operating system/formatting your original laptop hard drive.
Install the hard drive into an USB hard drive adapter case the plug this USB hard drive into the USB port in your laptop. The laptop will see it as an external storage device, open the various folders and copy the files to your laptop. You can delete any unwanted files off this external USB hard disk and use it for backups and file transfer.
Remove the hard drive and connect it to an USB hard drive adapterand then plug this adapter into a working computer's USB port. The computer sees this as an USB mass storage device (external hard drive) and youcan open the various folders and files, then you can backup your data.
The adapter case could be faulty but the hard drive may be OK.
Remove the hard drive and connect it to an USB hard drive adapter. Then plug the adapter into a working computer's USB port and if this computer sees it as an external hard drive and you can open the folders and files, then the hard drive is OK and you only need to buy a new USB hard drive adapter case.
If the hard drive is faulty, and the data is very important to you, there are companies that can retrieve data from faulty hard drives BUT it will cost you an arm and a leg for their services.
The chances are that you would have burnt the Power IC's, so there might not be any damage to the Hard Disk itself. you culd try buying a cheap External Enclosure at the closest IT store or moun the Hard drive on to a desktop computer. you should be able to retrive the data.
The Coolmax adapter is an USB hard drive adapter that can connect various types hard drives to your computer. This is used for testing and and transferring data to and from hard drives connected to the computer via the computer's USB port.
This Coolmax USB hard disk adapter can connect a 2.5-, 3.5- and 5.25-inch IDE or SATA hard disk to a PC. The black adapter box connects the hard disk, while the secondary power plug/adapter powers the drive. In the case of smaller notebook or SATA disks, the power cable is plugged directly into the adapter (as opposed to straight into the IDE hard disk). The red USB cable, meanwhile, can be used to power hard disks directly from the host PC's bus via another USB port.
Connect the hard drive to the adapter as detailed above, power up your computer and plug the Coolmax USB cable into the conputer's USB port. The computer will detect and see this as an external drive, most likely as a E drive (the next drive letter that is available). Click on this drive and open to open the folder/s where your data is stored then select the folder/s and/or data and copy them, then open the hard drive on the computer and paste the folder/s and/or files onto the new hard drive.
Do you have a usb to SATA connector? If so you can plug the old drive into the USB slot and it will act as a slave so you can pull the contents from the old drive to the new. The adapter is about 25.00 or If it was me I would invest into a pocket USB hard drive case that you can put your old drive into perminatly so you can always have a external hard drive for back up later after yo uhave moved the data over and reformatted it. The case is $25-$40.00.
