MY HP PAVILLIN ZD7000 NOTEBOOK PC NO LONGER FIRES UP DUE TO A BACK AC JACK. I REMOVED THE HARD DISK (HITACHI TELSTAR 2.5" IDE PATA) AND I AM USING A USB ADAPTOR TO VIEW ON MY PC RUNNING VISTA. I CAN ONLY VIEW THE RECOVERY PARTITION AND DON'T EVEN SEE THE PRIMARY WHERE I NEED TO GET MY DATA. HELP
Do not post in all caps next time, as it's hard to read and it looks like you're screaming. It's clear that your hard disk is damaged. Are you able to try using TestDisk to recover the data? Once you've recovered anything, try reformatting and running it on your laptop again.
