I can't fully format my hard drive on my laptop does it mean that I have to replace the processor only? I had tried a spotmau cd to unformat my hard drive since it said that it could rescue files if I unformat my hard drive and I can't even get into windows and there is an error in my operating system. Do I have to replace my whole drive or something and I can I recover my data?

> cannot fully format the hard-drive ...

What program are you using, and what happens (after how much time) when you try? What error-messages?

Your only "solution" may be to re-install Windows, and allow the Windows Installer to "format" the disk-drive.

I didn't close all the programs on my LG HXD7 1TB hexternal and took it out without ejecting it now it says I have to format it. What can I do to fix it without formatting it and loosing all my da


You'd better never do such improper operations again.
But, right now, in order to get back your data, you are supposed to act carefully as below:
1). Do not format this hard drive in case that anything important will lose at the same time.
2). Do not add any new file on this hard drive in case that anything new would rewrite your original data.
3). Do not randomly select a hard drive data recovery program. In your case, an efficient data recovery program always means a lot. Therefore, you can try to apply an unformatted drive data recovery freeware to get back your player data successfully:

4). Do not save the restored data on the same drive in case of data recovery failure.
5). Do not forget to format this drive after the data recovery process so that you can check whether this "not formatted error" problem could be resolved.
Note: Never try to save everything important on only one hard drive next time.

How to format compaq laptop nx6110


Hi

you could try to do this

Please try to save any files or pictures that you need before you do this either to a usb spare hard drive or a usb pen drive because you will loose it all if you format or reinstall windows

press the power on key as well as the F11 key
hopefully this will take you into the factory restore
which will format the hard drive while it restores

if you just want to format the hard drive itself then you could remove the hard drive
connect it to another computer via a usb cable and use the other computer to format the hard drive that you removed

or there are some good software out there that you can bootup with and format your drive without removing it from your laptop

a bootable spotmau would do the trick but its not cheap to buy
norton system works is another good software

pleasse let us know if this has helped you
many thanks

Hard drive


There are several applications that advertise the ability to unformat hard drives, here are a few I've found, though I have not used them:

http://www.restorer2000.com/

http://www.sharewareconnection.com/titles/unformat.htm

http://unformat-ntfs.qarchive.org/

Some of these are shareware, some have demos but require purchase to actually complete the unformat.

Also, recovery will also depend upon whether the drive was just formatted or with data was overwritten by other files.

Hard drive Self Test


If I may ask a dumb question, was the new drive formatted prior to running the test? A unformatted drive will fail.
