Hard drive crashed. New hard drive does not recognize Diskgo Edge, Suso I can restore

Hello Sharleen,

Your question is not understandable, If your hard disk has crashed, only professional data recovery services may help you out.

Competer starts, black screen, no power to wireless keyboard or mouse. Won't boot up.

I'm sorry to say this but these are signs of your computer's hard drive crashing. Hard drives (from what I've been told by other experts) typically crash after about 4-6 years of intense use. That's why I always recommend people backing up their important files every year. This has happened to my laptop before, I've had the same symptoms.

Now what about your files?

Well if you're lucky, you can ask a Geek Squad rep. from Best Buy or anyone else with proper experience to try to salvage your hard drive. Anyway you'd have to buy a new hard drive and replace your crashed one.

Solution: Take your computer to an expert to help you recover your hard drive files and replace the hard drive.

A70 hard drive crashed ,cdrom is not readable to recover

From your description of the issue, the most likely senario is a hard drive failure. Replacement hard drives run $50 to 100 or so and are generally fairly easy to change

Cannot find hard drive error after repair

Couldn't find the hard drive or the DVD drive? If it's the hard drive then the crash was due to a hard drive failure and the hard drive will have to be replaced. If it's the DVD drive, you will need to get a floppy for it and flash the bios in order for the machine to recognize the DVD drive again.
