Re: Hard disk is damage what can i do...?
Give it to the authorised service station and claim the warranty. They will backup your data and possibly replace with another HDD. There are many expert technicians who can retrieve data from a HDD even if its damaged.

Download. Burn ISO to make bootable install disk and reinstall. GL
hello miss sally, hi, the operating system error may be caused by a faulty hard disk or hard disk connection cable, and the hanging thing is caused by a faulty memory module, so check then out first, swap a new memory module, and for your hard drive, take it out from your laptop and use a PC to test the drive (applicable only if your hard drive is sata.)
It should not affect the data on the hard drive but with all repairs such as this it always worth making sure you have your hard drive backed up. I had a similar problem with a imac a couple of years ago and the hard drive was fine when it came back. Hope this helps.
the old hard disk died a month ago and you got a new new one now rt? that means you were not using your computer for one month.So there is a chance of processor heat sink paste worned out and processor is getting hot. So you need to remove the heat sink and apply new heat sink paste and re-fix processor, re-fix ram sticks also.. make sure processor fan is working well.
if its still having problem, you need to check the SMPS...
Another reason, you need check to the compatibility of mother board with hard disk. That means, you need to check how much size of hard disk your motherboard will support?
Did you repair permissions in disk utility? sometimes you have to use the instal disk disk utility. When doing updates do not touch it as it can cause corruptions. If you do a reinstall the apple support has a combo upgrade to download
if it's under warranty call sony and ask if they cover the hard disk failure,
If not purchase one of ebay (35-45 dollars) and install it yourself (check the manual, it will describe the process step by step.
Gateway laptop is really ****.
I bought Gateway MX8711 in March 2007, after 6 months i use it...the hard disk failed.
Gateway replaced a new Hitachi hard disk for me but not more than 8 months and it failed again.
Gateway told me that i have no more warranty because the repair warranty is only 90 days.
I bought this laptop and use it not more than 2 years, the hard disk was failed twice.
Usually Hard disk manufacturer provided 3 years warranty for the hard disk. The manufacturer year of the hard disk is May 2007....they should able to help because the har disk not more than a year being used...but they don't. This is really bad customer service and not fair to the buyer.
I will not buy any Gateway products anymore....i swear.
