Sounds like the drive may be starting to die. If your comfortable with Linux you may want to try using a live cd and a tool like ddrescue to copy the drive.

Heat can cause problems with the drives as well. Sometimes cooling the drive off in the fridge before copying the data can be enough to get it off.

Also test the RocketFish adapter with another drive if possible. I have one and it works good, but it can't hurt to rule it out as well.

If the data is really important there are also data recovery centers that can get it pretty much no matter how bad off it is, but it can cost a lot of money (a few hundred to thousand depending on the hard drive state).

Please leave feedback if this was helpful. Thanks.

you will need to reinstall the drivers for the Sony Vaio once again so that the DVD drive is detected and set.

Laptop Won't Boot


Hi,

Vaios are prone to faulty Ram ( memory Slots ) The only suggestion i can offer.
Is to remove and re-seat the CPU. this ocassionally solves the problem. if the laptops been dropped or banged. the cpu may have worked loose. but you,ll be looking at either ram or processor. failing this you can assume that theres a motherboard fault.

Thankyou For using Fixya.

Won't Load OS from DVD


If your laptop will post, meaning you can get to the BIOS, then YES. Re-flash it with the original BIOS, or a newer but proper BIOS. Then all should be OK again.

Acer Extensa 5620 HD and LCD screen problems


Unfortunately, the only way to repair the screen, is to send the computer back to acer. The prolem, is that the diode that controls one of the RGB Channels is broken, and since there are a million of these the size of a pin tip, it is extremely hard. As for the vista install problem, it could be a bad hard drive, try installing a new one, and if that doesn't work try finding the drivers it needs, and installing them somehow.
