Hard Drive Crashed

Hi, I have a Compaq Presario R3000 Laptop with a failed hard drive, It has stopped working completely just a black screen. I have tried the system recovery CD that came with it but nothing happens. I can buy a new hard drive but is there any way I can retrieve the data from the old one???

Would really appreciate some advice, Thanks.

Re: Hard Drive Crashed

Does the laptop post at all? Does anything come on the screen? Might not be a dead hard drive. If it was you would still get into the bios etc.

IF it is the hard drive (unlikely) then u can buy an adapter to plug it into a desktop and if your lucky u may be able to recover data using something like active file recovery.

Have you tried plugging it into a monitor to see if its the screen thats failed?

How come when I turn on my computer it goes to black screen that says [F5] key for HDD recovery?

It believes that your hard drive is corrupted (crashed). Press F5 and let it try to recover the data on the drive and isolate the corrupted area. Pray that it isn't the operating system that crashed.

Why does my acer aspire laptop have a black screen?

This could be a failing hard drive or failing RAM. The easiest and cheapest fix is the RAM. replace your RAM with some new sticks. It is easy and a lot cheaper than a hard drive with Operating System re-install. Which could also mean a loss of personal data (photos and videos) When your computer is working, back up your personal data as soon as you are able.

Kill disk crashed my notebook cant restart nothing on screen except flashing curser

Your hard drive is missing from the system. Or, just does not recognize it. The obvious - Remove any USB devices like drives and any media from disc player. Its trying to load, but can't find bootable hard drive, CD, or USB... Remove the hard drive and re-seat (reconnect). Check BIOS by pressing an F key during boot. Look on the screen for correct Function key. Might be F2 key. Verify BIOS recognizes the drive. It must be listed! There is no going forward if it's not. Check boot order and make internal hard drive first. Save and restart.

I installed windows 7 on my lenovo g460. After installation It cannot boot from harddisk. The LED light of HDD is turn on when pc starts and as soon as it comes to boot device selection it becomes off.

First reseat the hard drive. Next make sure you have no USB or ESATA devices connected to the laptop as the system could be trying to boot from one of them. Another possibility is that the hard drive could have failed. (when you install an OS you put the hard drive through a lot more stress than you would during normal use. If the drive was on the verg of failing that could have pushed it over the edge). There are built in hard drive diagnostics that you can run. Consult your owners manual or the Lenovo support site for a how-to guide.

Hai my name is laman my lenovo laptop just haveasmall problem it's displays only press {f2} for set up press f12 for boot device selection & can not execute so any one please solve this problem

Pressing F2 is the shortcut key to enter in cmos setup or bios settings where you can setup interrupt request and the direct memory access and also changing system date and time. While the F12 key is a shortcut key where you can select a boot device which are the hard disk drive if it's loaded with the operating system like windows xp or windows 7 etc., and if you are going to install or reformat your computer select the cd/dvd room drive to be the boot device. Supposedly the computer will load after the F2 or F12 appears on your screen if you have the functional operating system. But if your computer still restarting and always appearing on your screen the said F2 and F12 keys that means it is required to be reformat your computer. But before that you try to tapping F8 key while turning on your computer and select safe mode and press enter, after loading and still restarting that is the time to format your computer but you must back up your data or files that you saved on your computer. Call a computer technician or IT that know how to back up and can format your computer. Have a nice day.

I tried to plug in my eternal cd burner and my computer quit working after making an unusual noise. A friend looked at it and believed it was my motherboard. The screen is completely black..

replace all the leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions + IDE,SATA the ones that attach from your motherboard to hard drive one bad lead will cause a computer to shut down and lots of problems
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty or just replace them they are probably old and faulty ?
then click start?run type?cmd then type?chkdsk/f which will automatically fix any corrupt files on your hard drive then defragment your hard drive
you have to keep?a computer very clean & free of dust ?and? give it regular?maintanance
hope this helps

Gateway gt5404 reads no bootable device pc seemed to siow down some then went black was after micro. soft update ? unpluged twice pulled batt. reconected it worked set clock back worked awhile went black...

Any hard disk that makes clicking or metallic noises is faulty, especially when POST error message no bootable devices detected.
To confirm go into the BIOS setting and see if the hard drive is detected, if it cannot detect the hard drive then it is definitely faulty.
Replace the hard drive and install Windows on the new hard drive to get the computer working again.

Hard drive.

since that it crashed, it is more practical that you reformat it, rather than buying new one. it is the system crashed not the whole hard disk and there is a great chance of reviving it , you have the recovery disk with you, then better use it than buying.

have a nice day

Ma compaq 7380dmt laptop will not work i turn it on then i gets to the bit were u should log in but all it has on the screen is windowaxp n then it freez's can u help

Start the computer in safe mode by tapping the "F8" key as it comes on.
Then open a cmd(start, run, cmd) box and type " chkdsk c: /f " without the quotes. This will check your hard drive and fix any problems.
Then see if it will start normally.
