    Hi,
    What exactly do you mean by a corrupt Hard drive, like corrupt due to File system problems, or its physical like it can't be read. and if it can be read what is the error you get...

Data recovery is not a simple task. If the hard drive is not recognized by the pc or as any external mass storage then it is not possible in most cases to recover the lost files.
However, under certain conditions data recovery is possible but still require premium software packages or high professional fees. If your hard drive fulfills the conditions below:

  1. Not physically damaged.
  2. Can be recognized by the pc and you can open it if you install it as a secondary drive.
  3. If you have not already performed any actions to recover the data.
  4. And if it has NOT been formatted.
then you can use recovery tools like iolo Search and Recover and the like.
Most of the tools demand a purchase to made before data can be recovered but nearly all can tell in the trial period whether your data can be saved or not.
Search Google for data recovery software for more on them. It is not feasible to give detailed reviews for every software at this place. Please serch the recommendations section of Fixya.
You can also consider professional data recovery service.

Note: The more you tamper with your hard drive, the more it will be difficult to recover its contents.

Thank you for using fixya!

My pc turn on for 2 seconts and stops


The hard drive may be failing, or just the OS or hard drive corrupted. You could try this. Pull the hard drive out, and use a USB Hard Drive Adapter to connect the hard drive to a friend's computer, and save all the personal files (documents, pictures, etc.) you can to a folder on the friend's computer or an external hard drive.
Then, you could try to do a Factory Restore on the computer, and if that works, copy your personal files back to your newly restored computer.

I have a emachine unplugged it plugged it back in now its telling me to reboot and I can't get my computer to work how can I reboot without disk?


It sounds like your hard drive is not being recognized. I hope you didn't unplug it while it was still turned on as that can cause hard drive corruption. The hard drive or some other critical component may be failing, or just the OS or hard drive corrupted. If you have files that you do not want to lose, you could try this... Pull the hard drive out, and use a "USB Hard Drive Adapter" (available fairly cheap online) to connect the hard drive to a friend's computer, and save all the personal files (documents, pictures, etc.) you can to a folder on the friend's computer or an external hard drive.
Then, you could try to do a Factory Restore on the computer, and if that works, copy your personal files back to your newly restored computer.

Good Luck

1. Do not save any new file to memory card.
2. Connect your card to computer. You should see memory card shown as a drive letter (like H:) in My Computer.
3. Download recovery software, recommended one is asoftech photo recovery (simply because i was using it and it worked)

4. Install and open the photo recovery program, select your memory drive, and click 'Start' button to start scanning process which will find your deleted photos.
