Yes, the drive inside should be fine. Worst case it could be removed from the enclosure and connected internally to a pc.

GEEK SQUAD


I agree. Never ever ever ever ever take your computer to Geek Squad. I don't know how many times I have to go to people's homes and correct something GS did or they tell me they reformatted their drive, losing all their data without telling them first, for something so simple that could have been fixed inside of 15 minutes. And they charge way above industry standard and most of their techs have had no formal training.

Thanks and please take a moment to rate as FixYa. Thank you.

Hi karategrl2k,

In some situations, deleted files can be recovered. There are three levels of data recovery available, dependant upon the condition of your hard drive. For more information, visit your Geek Squad® precinct at your local Best Buy™ store. You may also check out other Geek Squad® services at http://www.geeksquad.com/pricing.

Thank you,
Jason,

Yeah you definitely don't want geek squad. Unfortunately I don't know of anyone immediately in the area. Give me 24 hours and I'll find someone. My email is info@antiochpc.com . Email me and I'll respond there.

Icons will not open


Hi gdubb,

There could be many different causes for the symptoms you describe. It could be a hardware problem, corruption of system files or settings, a program (such as protection software) malfunctioning, a virus or spyware infection, or a deeper problem. I would recommend bringing the system into a local Geek Squad Precinct for a diagnostic check - it's likely to be related to a deep problem with the system.

While I'd normally try to offer specific advice, based on the information provided there isn't much I could recommend aside from bringing it into a Precinct for analysis. There are simply too many possibilities based on your description to provide detailed recommendations.

Toshiba satellite is having issues


First thing to do is stop booting up the computer. This message means the Hard Disk Drive (HDD or "C Drive") has errors. Errors can mean disk corruption including bad sectors and/or physically damaged hardware inside the disk drive.
Since you are able to log into the computer, if even briefly, perhaps the HDD is what I like to call "fail-ING"; there may be hope of retrieving some of your data (pictures, etc). Ask your local Geek Squad Agent help you - if damage is severe, this is not necessarily something you can fix yourself (e.g. "fail-ED" HDD).
Remember, I said not to keep booting the computer - the more times you boot a "fail-ING" drive the less likely you will retrieve anything. If you insist, however, on a DIY method - you could learn more about the following:
1. New HDD installed
2. HDD Enclosure (USB)
3. Acronis Software
4. A nice drink and a couple of hours to clone the old HDD

OR 1. Geek Squad Agent
2. Credit Card/Checkbook

HINT: if you talk to a Geek Squad Agent and s/he can't explain Acronis software, find an Agent who can...

You can, but I highly recommend against it. Here is a good article on the Geek Squad: http://easytechtalk.com/2008/05/04/dont-use-geek-squad/

They used to be great, but now they are just unskilled salesmen. Stick with your manufacturer's approved technicians or use a respectable local technician. Do you have a particular problem that we can help with?

If warranty, no body better then Apple. I've heard of good and bad stories from Geek Squad, so I guess it depends what you need.
