Most Bestbuys do data retrieval, as do most smaller local shops. A smaller shop will treat you better and have a much better price. Bestbuy is darned expensive.

How do I fix a failed hard drive in a laptop?


IT IS VERY SIMPLE TO DO. IF YOU CAN TURN A SCREWDRIVER AND READ YOU CAN REPLACE A HARD DRIVE. ANYONE CAN, MY GRANDMOTHER CAN. JUST WATCH IN VIDEOS. I WOULD SUGGEST THAT IF YOU WANT SOMEONE TO DO IT FOR YOU USE A WELL KNOWN LOCAL COMPUTER SHOP THAT HAS BEEN AROUND FOR YEARS. SOMEONE YOU CAN TRUST NOT TO RIP YOU OFF. FRANKLY I FIND GEEK SQUAD HAS A VERY POOR REPUTATION, OR AT LEAST I GET ALOT OF COMPLAINTS ABOUT THEM. CALL AROUND YOUR LOCAL COMPUTER SHOPS. KEEP THE BUSINESS LOCAL. GOOD LUCK.

Would like to remove hd from hp dv 9205 to retrieve all my photos as the computer is dead . is there a way to use laptop HD in outside box to retrieve data ?


Of course! You just need an enclosure that works with SATA drives. The drive is accessible on the bottom of the laptop. You'll see a black plate with two circle looking icons. That' usually the hard drive. Just unscrew the screws and slide the hard drive out. There might be another set once you're inside, but it's easy you won't need a guide it's self-explanatory.

Hope this info helps!

Hi, please help, simple question really...


Your best bet on purchasing a hard drive is at pricewatch.com, most places will charge you almost double what you can get one there for. Buy the hard drive first, then, if you don't feel confident in changing it out and reinstalling the operating system yourself, take it to a small computer shop in your area. They will charge you a reasonable price for installation. Don't take it to Bestbuy, the Geek Squad is outrageous on their prices, plus they'll try to sell you more "stuff" you really don't need.

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...
