Question about Maxtor Hard Drive
Internal maxtor d540x-4k. Any way to get data off drive that is dead if so where and maybe how much? Makes one hard click when booting and does not show up on boot sequence or when installed as second drive. Drive does spin and green light comes on.

You need to boot from your original windows and it will detect the harddisk and format it and install the operating system.

Actual solution. The darker side panels pop off and they alone hold things together. Simply pry each side away at rear. That would be end with power and USB connections are.

SOURCE: does not boot just clicks
It sounds like your hard drive has crashed if all you're hearing is clicking noises and it no longer works. Unfortunately if this IS the case, you can't get the data off unless you have tons of money to pay a forensic data recovery specialist (crazy expensive). Sorry buddy.

Testimonial: "Quick response... even though is was bad news. Well at least I know where I stand. Thanks, MC"
If you can hear mechanical sounds from the case the problem is in the hard disk and moving it to your laptop isn't the solution. In that case check for a data recovery company at your area as sooner as posible. If the sound is no mechanical I'll tell you the way to move the HD. Describe me the kind of sound.

Testimonial: "Thank you very much for this reply. The clicking noise is very quiet and soft and repeats about every second. Itis hard to describe further than this and if the noise was not as soft as it is, I would confident that it is mechanical but as the noise is so soft I am unsure. Does this help at all?"
