Hard disk tiking when power up.


Hi,

Some times you don't know if your hard drive is working or not. Your external hard disk might drop on the ground, or your desktop/laptop hard drive might not be booting. Which ever the case maybe, here is how to find out the condition of your hard disk:

Put your ear close to your hard disk, if you hear your hard disk make a crackling noise, be prepared to buy another hard disk because such hard disk is damaged and cannot be fixed. Also note that it is difficult to recover files from such hard drive.

But if you don't hear a crackling sound, use your hand(s) to feel the drive, if it vibrates, it means the hard disk is in good condition.

What damages external hard drive most times is if you don't eject (safely remove) it from your computer, when it drops on the ground or hits any hard object etc

If your external hard disk stops working, firstly, check if the hard disk inside the case is in good condition by checking for crackling sounds and vibration. Once you observe that the hard disk is in good condition, this means the hard drive case is defective/the cause of the problem. Get another drive case and your drive will work again without loosing any file/data on it.

For desktop/laptop hard drive maintenance, make sure you always shut down your computer properly, don't remove the CPU's power cord while the computer is turned on. To be on a safer side, always use UPS (uninterrupted power supply) for your desktop computer.

Also, when using your laptop, makes sure its fixed at a position. Avoid any shake as the hard disk might shift from its normal position in the process.

Good luck.

I have a laptop which it does'nt detect the hard drive what is the problem?


The problem could be one of these -
The hard disk needs reseating to make proper electrical connection.
or
The hard disk is faulty.
or
The BIOS has not detected the hard disk.
or
The hard disk controller is faulty

To determine the fault -
Reseat the hard disk and boot up the laptop.

Check the BIOS configuration - does it detect the hard disk. The BIOS may have a hard disk diagnostic, if so then run the diagnostic.

For a further hard disk test - remove the hard disk and connect it to an USB hard drive adapter and plug it into a working computer's USB port. If the hard disk is OK then this computer will detect it as an external hard drive and you can open the folders and files.
If not then the hard disk is confirmed faulty.
To get the Gateway working, install a new hard drive and install Windows, the laptop's device drivers and your programs.

Not detecting hard disk


first thing to do is to remove and reconnect the hard disk to the system. devices like hard disk not detected often is just a result of loose connections. if this will not work, may be a good idea to test another hard disk with your computer or test the hard disk on another computer to isolate if the hard disk will need to be replaced.

Hardrive not detected


You may have a hardware fault.
Try re-seating the hard drive.
Then check the BIOS to see if the hard disk is detected.
If the hard disk is not detected then either the hard disk is faulty or the disk controller on the motherboard is faulty.
To further test the hard disk, remove the hard disk and connect it to an USB hard disk adapter and plug it into a working computer's USB port. If this computer cannot see it as an external hard drive nor can you open the various folders and files, then the hard drive is faulty.
Then you need to replace the faulty hard drive, install Windows on the new hard drive, together with the laptop's device drivers and your programs to get a working laptop again.

Mother board or CpU Doesnt work. technician said I have a ghost inside my CPU!


verify your bios settings with regards to what the pc is expecting in way of hard drive.
Do you have the luxury of another hard drive that you can try on this pc ? - this will 'suggest' where the problem rests.
Make sure the lead is fully located on the back of hard drive.
If possible - change the lead for a 'known working' lead (Maybe from the computer that your hard drive was recognized in)
