The best way to attempt this is to set your drive as a slave drive and put it in another system. If the system can recognize the drive you may be able to retrieve some files. If its reads some of the files and you're able to attempt to retrieve them you can also try putting the drive in the freezer. This will help if there are loose parts on the arm and head. The cold will contract the metal and tighten it up for a few minutes so you can maybe read the drive. If the system can't see the drive the only way to recover anything is to send it off to a data recovery company. They're sometimes very expensive though but the only option is to rebuild the drive and fix it enough to try to get the files off of it. Not something you can do a home. Has to be in an special room.

I have a HP G70 - 120EM laptop and it shows "no


First - re-seat the hard disk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot and go into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If it doesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty.
Then the hard drive needs to be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer or laptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioning computer/laptop again.

My hp nx9030 keep rebooting itself with the message, PXE E61 media test failure check cable, PXE -MOF EXITING PXE ROM.what can i do


The error PXE-E61: Media test failure usually means the hard diskhas failed or the hard disk needs re-seating or the disk controller is faulty. First - re-seat the harddisk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot andgo into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If itdoesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty. Next - to check if the harddrive is faulty, remove the hard drive and insert it into an USB hard drive adapter and connect it to a workingcomputer's USB port. If this computer cannot see itas an USB mass storage device and you cannot open the various folders and fileson this drive, then this confirms the hard drive is faulty. Then the hard drive needsto be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer orlaptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioningcomputer/laptop again.

Hp pavilion a1210n disk boot failure, insert system disk and press enter. how do you boot in save mode


Turn your computer off, turn it back on, as soon as you do that, start pressing F8 repeatedly until you get to a screen where you can access safe mode. If it's saying disk boot failure, you most likely have a dying/dead hard drive.

Suddenly the computer and all the programs froze and it does not restart, I always a black screen with a mse telling me to reboot the computer or to insert the hard drive device to reboot... I insert the...


note yet..............the hard disk is the problem.
did you by mistake drop the laptop or someone did. It may have sloted out of place and sometimes makes it not function well. sometimes a little tap at the disk compartement side could solve a shifted disk which can be the case here or try opening the hard disk compartment with the appropiate screw drivee, remove the disk and reinsert it again and make sure it fits firmly. if you are within warranty period do return it to be atttended to by a technician or counsult a local technician for help.
good luck.

Laptop crash after inserting blank disk


do not worry at all. take out the cd and reboot in safe mode by pressing F8 at bootup. Then you can restore your laptop to an earlier date from Start->All progs->Accessories->System->restore. reboot normal this time.

Hard drive light comes on, CD drive work, blank screen. Otherwise machine is dead


Have the same problem,

Possible Causes

Graphics Card Dead (REALLY BAD)
Just need a HARD REBOOT.

If it is your graphics card, then go find another laptop, Acer embeds them to the motherboard.

Try Hard Reboot first though,
1. Disconnect AC and Battery.
2. Press and Hold POWER for 30-45 seconds.
3. Reconnect AC.
4. Try to boot up.
5. After bootup insert battery.

If your laptop is still under warranty the Motherboard should be covered. I wish you luck as losing a computer is tough.
