Question about Panasonic Toughbook 50 Notebook
My toughbook has shut down. It says something about a hard error. The hard drive sounds like it is making a wierd noise. The screen turns on, but i am unable to get it to boot, even in Safe Mode.
i tried swapping the hard drive with another toughbook and it does the same thing. I'm guessing that the hard drive itself is somehow damaged or the connection from the hard drive to the computer is failing.
Any help on how to recover the info on the hard drive would be helpful.
You need an adapter is the hard drive is IDE, but not if it's Sata. You can probably connect it internally to almost any desktop computer, and then copy the data to a flash drive or other medium.
I can help you with the technicalities, but you'll have to find a friend who has a computer you can "borrow".
Alternatively, you can probably find a local computer shop that can provide this as a service, though you'd certainly have to pay.

PS3 Clicking noise is associated with the hardware aspect, so that's your starting point it may come from the PS3 fan clicking, so do check out the fan if there's something that might have got stucked in between. Clogs from too much dust or dirt may also cause PS3 clicking sound.
PS3 clicking noise may also come from the hard drive. The hard drive are a bit noisy because of the mechanical parts and moving drive head when reading and storing data. Again, if the noise level is very minimal, there's no worry. PS clicking noise fro the hard drive that becomes too audible may signify that the hard drive is having mechanical problems and may soon broke down. At this point you may want to backup any data you have
I hope this helps you.
