Re: Is my hard drive broken? Can I some how "reboot" a...
Ok so there are a few things you can try. firstly simply remove the case and see if anything internal is damaged, DO NOT go and start prodding a pulling anything that seems broken, as odds are you will make it work. If there are any internal damage odds are you wont be able to restore any data unless you get it fixed by a professional. My solution is to take the Hard drive from its housing and put it into your computers dvd drive, inserting all necessary cables eg power supply and the reader cable. dont do this when pc or hard drive are switched on. this has happened to me before and i was able to recover all of my data. hope this helped. josco91 =)

Is it an electric like buzzing not too loud, or more strong?
I had a problem with the vacuum pump which is located on the left side, a little bit right, below the water coolant expansion tank, it is white and has the size of about 5 cm in length and about 2-3 cm diameter, if you pull down both little black rubber harnesses and it stops, then it was a vacuum pump. Made a quite loud buzzing sound in my car after I stopped the engine. I'd give it a try, only 10 seconds to do the work. If this is the problem you can get one free from a wreck or buy a used one, the don't really go bad too often, I would not buy a new one. But also read the other solutions as this was only my case.
My hard drive was dead and wasn't recognized by the computer, it didn't even start, just a few clicking noises, which according to some of the experiences is the same as a DEAD Hardisk. Anyways, as I read that sometimes this happens as a result of a hit, well, I wacked my HD as a last hope for it to recover its "memory" (as in the movies) and believe me or not, it worked! I don't know if this might help yours, but it saved mine! The way I did it was like this: I started the pc and when the HD started to run and I heard a couple of clicks, I hit it against the table while in vertical position (assuming that the arm of the HD might slightly move better that way) one time, and then when the spinning and the first click was heard agin I hit again. After that I heard the typical searching sound of a HD, and you can imagine I started to pray that what I heard wasn't my anxiety sound (if it has any). Now I am a firm believer in the old trick of whacking the old TV to get the vital signal back! Good luck to you too!
This could be a sign of a failing hard drive - I would backup all of your important documents immediately to an external drive to prevent you from losing any important data.
As you have already cleaned out the dust , there is a chance that one of the system fans (or the CPU fan) may be faulty or some wires inside your system case might be catching on the fan while it is spinning.
Disconnect all the system fans , so just the CPU fan is left plugged in and then switch on the system and see if the noise has stopped. Then plug each fan back in one at a time to identify if any of them are causing the noise.
Going on the information aas I read it, the blade is slipping, meaning that it is not tightened enough or a spacer in the hole in the blade is too thick. Make sure that the wall plug is pulled out before attempting any work on the blade.
Windows cannot read the "Table-Of-Contents" from the SanDisk.
So, it "guesses" that trying to write a new T.O.C. will prepare the disk for "first" usage.
So, say 'no' to the question.
Search online for "file recovery" programs -- they try to read through the entire volume, chunk-by-chunk, to see if _any_ of the files can be read, and if those chunks can be "stitched" together to reassemble your files.
If the walking belt slips when walked on, first remove
the key and UNPLUG THE POWER CORD.
Using the hex key, turn both rear roller bolts clockwise,
1/4 of a turn. When the walking belt is correctly
tightened, you should be able to lift each edge of the
walking belt 2 to 3 in. (5 to 7 cm) above the walking
platform. Be careful to keep the walking belt centered.
Then, plug in the power cord, insert the key, and
carefully walk on the treadmill for a few minutes.
Repeat until the walking belt is properly tightened.If you still have slipping then the drive belt under the motor shroud can also cause this problem unplug unit remove shroud then plug unit in start it up observe the front roller to see if it stops if it does locate the tension adjusting bolt by the motor loosen motor mount and proceed adjusting until slipping has been eliminated
Check the USB port and/or the cable, check if windows can detect your device. If windows can detect but can't read data perform a format or delete the partition and then use any file or partition recovery software you want to use. They will automatically rebuild partition table and MBR according to your need. If windows can't detect, unplug your device, uninstall the driver from the device manager, restart your pc, plug your device again and see windows will automatically install the device.
