Question about Acer Aspire 5100 Notebook
HITACHI Hard Drive Model# HTS541080G9AT00, 5400RPM, ATA/IDE
from an Acer Aspire 5100-3583 Laptop.
A few days earlier it just suddenly turned off. I turned it back on easily
and it first showed a dark screen with some message about checking the C
disk and it went on normally. Less than a week later, the computer went
dead and never turned back on again. The little pin-head size green light
on the front edge of the laptop is on showing power is on, but when you
push the computer on botton, nothing happens. I may be wrong, but I am
assuming the Hard Drive disk does not turn.
I have a 3 years old Western Digital ATA 40 Gig Hard Drive also from a desk top with un-backed up
data and un-printed family photos which went dead and I can't get the data back.
I wrote to Western Digital and said; If you take my C-disk out and place it in
an out-dated same capacity external USB Hard Drive and sell it to me at a
couople of hundred dollars, judging by the fact that there are today over
10 Million un-backed up dead Hard Drives in the US, you should easily make
a few $Billion from your outdated stuff. Isn't that good considering the depression
we are in? They cowardly said; ''...we don't do that, sorry!''
You tech guys, can't you do that and make a big chunk of that waiting few $Billion? Please let me know, I will be your first customer. Thank you!
Put the laptop in the freezer for a couple hours. i heard that can temporarily fix a problem with a Hard Drive. If it works then quickly back up the Hard Drive and get a new one and upload everything onto that one. Caution: i dont know any side effects of freezing the laptop so freeze it at your own risk.
