There is probably a restore sector in the hard drive that has 25 gigs alotted to it. This is where your OS copy is housed in case you need to reinstall it since they don't give you discs anymore.

You do not have the best version of Win7... you have the cheap one. If you had the fancy Win7 version of even any version of WinXP you could see your files, if the HDD is good. Ask a friend for assistance and plug the USB adapter into another PC. (I have my diagnostics PC with WinXP to avoid the issue.)

Go to the website of the computer's manufacturer to get the driver. After installing all the drivers, make sure that they are updated. Scan your computer with RadarSync and install the updates.

I hope this helps!

Laptop won't boot after new hdd and memory upgrade


Re-seat the memory and the HDD connector. If no change try the mem modules one by one. If no change try it without the HDD connected to see if there is a problem with the new HDD.
