Have a laptop that was dropped from several feet. No backups are available.
So far was able to transfer portion of the data. But now looks like things
When using BartPE trying to run chkdsk /r and get error message saying that
drive can't be
locked. ERD doesn't even see the installation. When try to bootup machine on
own get error message that ntloader is missing. When just let the machine
sit on it own
hear clicking noises coming from HD once every minute. I think it's pretty
hard drive is still spinning up but for some reason I can't read from it
Any suggestions/methods on how I can revive it at least temporarily to
data off of it.? I'm talking about simple things that I can try such as
or smacking HD against the tabletop so that reading head will retract etc.
Basically anything I can try without any dedicated equipemnt.
Also thinking of getting this little gizmo and maybe hooking it up to my
and seeing if I can reading anything else. Will it allow me to hook up
to desktop? http://www.compusa.com/products/prod...4956&pfp=srch1
