My hard drive is not detecting in BIOS and windows??
it just stop displaying, when i connect to PC via IDE cable it beeps but thats it
Please help me recovering my data i can pay $50 if anyone help me recovering my data
I`m serous and thanks
explain you beep... two times? long short? maybe memory failure.... if you desperate.. ask your friend computer, try to get to slave hardisk and see if your hardisk "real fail" or not...
if really fail...
try software like testdisk http://www.cgsecurity.org/wiki/TestDisk
if still fail, put in freezer, extract important data..
after that ... destroy that one... (donot sell or keep...destroy it..)
sometimes virus like autorun.inf is corrupted though....
you can save your 50$ for else though..
next time remember to backup your data (buy separate hardisk, put it into separate place... think about if thief come and steal your house...)
suddenly it freezes, I shutdown via holding power button
when I switch it on after a while "INTERNAL HDD ERROR"
Then I placed my friends new hard drive in my laptop same error
I took my laptop to repair shop it cost me £20 and 2 hours to fixed it, technician said laptop motherboard got some short circuit
Now my laptop is ok
but my hard drive never work since then, I`ve attached it with my friends laptop as slave it start searching for device driver but the "driver failed"
nothing displaying in windows or on MANAGE(device manager)
yesterday I`ve put that hard drive in my laptop as master and went to BIOS
it shows 20GB of hard drive (but my original drive is 60GB)
whenever I connect it to computer via IDE/SATA cable it beeps 4-5 times hard drive make sound like something is happening then after 5 beeps completely SILENT
