Probably its internal components have been damaged hence cannot be read. If you have sensitive data, it will cost a fortune to recover them. Else it is cheaper to buy a new one. however, id recommend you take it to a service centre first to confirm the condition of your hard drive.

My Iomega prestige just fell to the floor during a process of writing some files, it got ejected and now when I plug it in, it tries to get read and it sound like the disk is moving but then the computer...

If you're lucky it only caused logical damage. If not you need a lab to recover the files.

With the drive plugged in, right click on "My Computer" or Computer and select Manage. Click continue or allow on any popups

when the MMC loads click on disk management on the left and wait for the drive info to load.

Reply back with each drives information and we'll help determine which solution will work for you.

My lacie hard drive fell a few minutes ago. It now takes a really long time to load up and open files. It also keeps making a clicking sound what could be the problem and whats the solution

It sounds like you have damaged the drive.

The clicking sound is a mechanical failure where the the read arm inside the drive is hitting the magnetic platters. You should backup your data immediately as drive failure is imminent.

MY cOMPAQ pRESARIO CQ60 fell and cant complete boot

Most likely in this case, the damage is to the hard drive or its connection to the motherboard. The CQ series though has a three point screw attachment for the hard drive so Im more inclined to think that the shock of the landing has damaged the read/write head on the hard drive. If you happen to have another hard drive for a laptop, try installing a new drive and run the installation disc and see if it will complete and boot completely....if it will then the problem was the old drive.

Was working fine until it fell over whilst on, it then started making a strange sound and now dosent work. a red light has appeared. Can this be fixed without losing the info store.

The hard drive sounds like it is physically damaged inside. Sometimes data can be recovered from the hard drive, but it does cost $

If the data on the drive isn't absolutely necessary to recover, I would get a new hard drive and reload the software.

Operating system not found.

The hard drive has either been damaged and can't be read, or its connection was knocked loose from the motherboard. Open whatever cover necessary on your computer to get at the hard drive and make sure any connecting cables are properly seated. If the drive was damaged by the fall you will need to replace it and restore your system.
