Well obviously hard drives are not made to be dropped. The write head could be out of alignment, the platters (disks) could be cracked. You can take it to a professional to see if they can get the information off for you, but that will be costly. This drive is damaged beyond normal repair unfortunatly. I am sorry to give you this news.

Hard drives are sensitive. The accident that happened was the reason why your hard drive is acting like that as of this moment. You cannot do anything for that anymore. But, I can suggest that you buy a new hard drive which is shock or drop resistant. There are hard drives which have that kind of functionality. It's not easily damaged even if it's dropped.

    When I was still working as a technical support in one of the well known computer manufacturer's, I met a certain company which can retrieve data from a broken hard drive. They call themselves "DRIVE SAVERS". Check this website:

I wan't to format a packard bell silver 320 GB disk. GHOST 8 will not make a disk to disk copy onto it, because there still are some data on it after i have del. all.

IMPORTANT: Go very slow and be VERY careful not to erase or format the wrong disk. Backup data on the computer you are working on to another place just in case.

In Windows:
Right click "My Computer" and select Manage
Expand "Storage" and select "Disk Management"
Right click on the disk or partition in the right hand pane and select format.
This will erase all data on the disk/partition and format it so you can save data on it.

Without Windows:
Boot to a Windows CD and select a clean install of Windows. When you are prompted to select a location to install Windows delete the partitions on the 320GB disk. Then select the entire disk to install Windows with the option of Quick Format. After you see the format complete turn off the computer by holding the power button. Now your 320GB disk is one big empty partition for you to use.

Please vote for my solution if it helps.

Packard Bell Easy One Silver monitor problem

Hi there.
You need to be looking at the inverter, this is a very thin circuit board located underneath the screen so you will have to remove the plastic bezel (screen surround) check the connections on that. If the screen is still white look at the inverter itself because there could be a dry joint or the coil has gone, if you are confident with a soldering iron then re-solder all the points on the inverter circuit board and try it again.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

Sounds like the drive is dying. Is it externally powered, or powered through the USB port? How old is the drive? When you say 'strange' what does it sound like?
