Fix pc hard drive


Did the drive crash? Is the computer not recognizing the drive? If so your files are gone unless you want to spend over a grand trying to get them retrieved.

If the computer recognizes the drive but you don't see your files, then a virus has just hidden the files. They are there and retrievable, just hidden.

Hi. There was a power failure two times and my desktop had been turned on. Now when I try to power it up it just makes a continued clicking noise. I cannot get it to boot up.


BAd news. It sounds like the head on your hard drive crashed. It happened to my sisters computer. what happens is that due to sudden power loss, the part that reads the hard drive literally crased into the disk surface and gouged a huge-*** groove, rendering it unreadable. if there is importand data on it, send it to data recovery experts. Buy a new hard drive, also.

Will the computer start and boot up at all? You said you did a restore.

If it will, you may be able to insert your backup disk after the computer boots and use Windows Explorer to view and copy your files back on to the hard drive.

If the computer won't boot, you can reinstall Windows and after it boots then try to use Windows Explorer to see if you can retrieve the files.

It all depends. Best bet is take it to a data recovery professional & see if they can recover anything for you. Hope this helps.

If your hard drive is big enough try using Partition Magic unless you already have another partition. You can send your most important things like music, pictures and docs to the other partition. Then do a reinstall only on the C partition. Doing a system restore is drastic anyway putting your computer back as the day you bought it.
Viruses are great for messing up window system files and settings which without proper virus removal software, re-installation of the most practical partition (C) is the one to target your repairs to. This case most likely being reinstalling windows which by default is only on C. Be careful of your choices when choosing which partition to delete and reinstall. Pick only C. leaving (x) where that means your other partitions, alone.

Computer "rebooted" or somehting and accidently lost everything


You will need to take the hard drive out of your computer and connect it to someone else's computer as a second drive so that you can pull the files off before reinstalling Windows.
