Question about Computers & Internet
Hey, my hard drive doesn't seem to be running (spinning) any more after it was dropped.
It still lihgts up, it beeps 3 or 4 times, but, no activity.
Can you help me?
Do you need the data recovered?
Because if you dropped it and it's not working, it's probably been knocked out of alignment. It has platters that spin and are read just like a record player and they are very fragile.
One thing I have done before, and this is going to seem strange, but put it in a zip lock bag and then inside your freezer. Leave it in there for a few hours. Then take it out, and sometimes it will be recognized and you can get your data off.
