Hi, unfortunately my Wii fell onto the carpet last


i think that the laser inside the disk drive has skipped

lets say the laser moves from a to b (a is the start)(b is the end)

the laser might of jumped to b but the console still thinks it is at a and it keeps trying to move it towards b but it cant go any further because the laser tracks stop

you could open the console up and test the drive or replace the disk drive

Accidental fell from table onto the carpet.We cannot get our pictures to come up onto the computor is there anything we can do


If it was running when it hit the ground, then it's probably busted. There are many specialty companies like OnTrack that can recover data, but it's expensive.

My hard drive was knocked of the table and landed on carpet


Computers do not like being dropped especially when it is powered up and running. It can do a heaps of damage.
If the hard drive in the computer makes a clicking sound and it won't boot up and/or an error message says it cannot find the hard disk or operating system, then the hard disk is damaged beyound repair.
With luck if the hard disk is only damaged then you can replace the hard drive and install Windows on the new hard drive with the device drivers and your programs. Your data on the old hard drive is gone unless you backed up your data onto CD, flash drive etc.

Odd clicking noise...


That clicking sounds if ever loud enough is one annoying symptoms of failed disc. When it accidentally drop the reader may come off the disc. It sad to say but you may consider to change your hard disc.

Archos not seen by pc


This can happen to any external drive on a pc. If the Archos is set to PC Hard Drive mode, then plug it into you PC and click Start, click Run, type compmgmt.msc, and then click OK.
In the console tree, click Disk Management.
You can now allocate a drive letter to the Archos.
If you cannot see your Archos in this window, then you may have a dodgey usb cable.

Unresponsive harddrive


hi,
you have definitely got a dead HD (hard-drive) there, nothing you can do about it.
sounds like the force of the shock has damaged the HD beyond repair.
HD work by i high precision arm that reads data on a spinning platter, the chances are you have damaged the arm and the click is where the arm is trying to read the HD with no luck

sorry

Fantom Drive problem


Try connecting it to a Windows XP Pro pc. Right click on "My Computer", left click on "Manage". Once the new management console opens, left click on "Disk Management". If the USB drive is recognized by the pc, you will be able to right click on it, and select "Delete Partition". WARNING: YOU ARE DELETING EVERYTHING ON THE DRIVE! Once it's done, right click on the drive again, and select "Create New Partition". Proceed thru the wizard that pops up, and format it. You will have a choice of using FAT32, but, if the partition is larger than 32 GB, it will fail (it's a Windoze limitation), so NTFS is your only choice, unless you use a 3rd party utility, Win98 (supports huge FAT32 partitions, 4 TB, I think), or Linux.(preferred). Good Luck, hopefully everything will work out fine. T-Power

Lightly Dropped Seagate 100GB External Hard Drive


Unfortunately, this probably means the read/write heads were jarred and can no longer function properly. That's usually fixable, but it's a very expensive fix because the parts are inside the hard drive and the data surfaces are very delicate... Most people are better off simply replacing the hard drive unless the data is absolutely vital.
